Dear SS Info Gov,

Please would you let me know if you would be able to provide the information i have requested with regards to Four Seasons Brand homes only.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

M Mahboob

SS Info Gov, Leeds City Council

Dear M Mahboob

In response to your email dated 14th July 2016.

With regards to your request for data regarding Safeguarding Concerns/Incidents with regards to Four Seasons Brand homes only, under Section 12(1) of the Freedom of Information Act we are not obliged to provide the information which you have requested as we consider that it exceeds the appropriate limit. We are, however, still obliged under Section 1(a) of the Act to inform you whether or not the information in question exists. I can confirm Leeds City Council Adult Social Care holds the information requested but it is not held in a reportable format, and would therefore require each case file to be interrogated manually. This would take longer than 18 hours and therefore your request falls above the “appropriate limit”. This limit is set by fees regulations at £450 (equally 18 hours) for public authorities such as ours and is calculated using a rate of £25 per hour which is also prescribed under the same regulations.

Kind regards

Michelle
