Dear Mr. Adams,

I write in response to your request for information disclosure under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000, which we are treating as a request for
information disclosure under the Environmental Information Regulations
(EIR) 2004 as it covers `environmental information' as defined by EIR. I
confirm that Yorkshire Forward holds information similar to that which you
request and address each of your points in turn:

1. A list of all expenditures relating to repairs and upkeep of the
Bradford Odeon including names of contractors, amounts, dates, and the
nature of the expense

Response: Please see attached excel spreadsheets, arranged by tabs in
respect of each contractor.

2. The number of votes received for each of the options from the 2005
public consultation on the Bradford Odeon

Response: Yorkshire Forward does not hold the information you request and
is, therefore, unable to provide you with a copy of the information you
request. This is because the public consultation did not require members
of the public to vote but to comment on the schemes presented. In this
respect please see attached Odeon Site Consultation Report by Braham
regarding the methodology. The final scheme was decided through a panel of
experts who selected a developer based upon tender submissions.

The password is "Yorkshire2!" (without the quotes). The standard unzip utility in Linux did not work, I had to use p7zip.
