Dear Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council,

As a follow-up to my request dated 17th July 2018 (see: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/b...), I re-ask the question relating to use of the site as detailed below.

1. In 2018 it was stated that the site was still in development so usage figures were unknown. Please can you advise usage figures for the site at this time on an annual basis?

In addition to this, please can you help with answers to the below, also in relation to the business hub website?

2. How many businesses are registered on the site and actively using it?

3. In addition to the annual hosting fee, please advise if there are any on-going maintenance fees?

4. Have any additional fees been incurred as a result of this website, excluding those previously mentioned?

Yours faithfully,

J Morgan
