received by the County Council on 5th August 2014. Your request is
currently being considered. If the County Council is able to provide you
with the information you have requested, then under the Freedom of
Information Act you are entitled to receive it within 20 working days.

prevent release of some or all of the information you have requested.  The
County Council will assess your information request in light of the
exemptions.  If exemptions do apply, then the County Council may decide
not to release all, or part, of the information you have requested.  I
shall inform you if this is the case, and advise you of your rights of
appeal.

If the information you request contains reference to a third party then
they may be consulted prior to a decision being taken by the County
Council as to whether to release the information to you.  You will be kept
