Dear Ms Stone
 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request, which was logged under
FOI 14/652 Vale and passed to me to respond accordingly.

 

Under Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 2000 Act) you
are entitled to be informed in writing whether the council holds the
information specified in your request and, if that is the case, to have
that information communicated to you unless any of the statutory
exemptions apply. I have considered your request and can confirm that
although we do hold the information asked, I believe it would be a breach
of data protection if all information requested within your email was
released to you.

 

You have expressed a requirement to have details of all properties in the
council's area with a rateable value of £12,000 or greater. The
information you have requested includes details of empty properties and
the detail of the primary liable party for each. However, I would not be
able to disclose this data for non-domestic accounts where personal
information, i.e. individual names, was held as being the liable party. In
addition Vale of White Horse DC no longer provide details of empty
properties and I therefore attach the council's refusal notice.

 

Please find attached the information you requested, stripped of all
personal data (sole traders, partnerships etc) and empty properties.

 

Please treat this as the council's formal response under the 2000 Act. If
you are not satisfied with the decision I have made in response to your
request, you may complain under the council's complaints procedure. If you
remain dissatisfied after following that procedure, you have the right
under Section 50 of the 2000 Act to complain to the Information
Commissioner if you feel the council has not dealt with your request
properly. You can contact the Commissioner at Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF (telephone number: 01625 545745). You can also
find further information at [1]www.ico.gov.uk .
 
Kind regards
 
Vicky
