Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Derby City Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Derby City Council,

I would like to request the following data under the Freedom of Information Act 2000:

1. How many Fixed Penalty Notices has your council handed out in 2018 for the littering of cigarette butts?
2. How many FPNs have not been paid within the allocated time frame, and subsequently gone to court for littering cigarette butts in 2018?
3. How much is your FPN for littering cigarette butts?

Yours faithfully,

Naomi Aharony

Dear Naomi,

I refer to your request received on 22/8/19 which is being dealt with under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIRs) for 'littering of cigarette butts'.

The 20 working day deadline to send you the response was by 20 /9/19.

Unfortunately, it is taking the Council longer than expected to deal with your request because of the workload of the department responsible for providing the information.

I apologise for this delay and hope to be able to send you a response by 18/10/19 or earlier, if possible.

You can ask for our decision to be reviewed under the Council’s FOI Complaints Procedure. Please send your appeal reasons within 40 working days to the …

Dear Naomi,

 

Thank you for your request received 22/08/19 which is being dealt with
under the Environmental Information Regulations – EIR for information on
‘Littering cigarette butts’.

 

The 20 working day deadline to send you the response was by 20/09/19.

Unfortunately, it is taking the Council longer than expected to deal with
your request because of the workload of the department responsible for
providing the information and also the current COVID – 19 national
situation. 

The safety and well-being of individuals is the Council’s utmost priority
at this time. Statutory deadlines may not be met due to the demand placed
on services in dealing with the current pandemic. Further guidance can be
found on the [1]Information Commissioners Office website.

The Council hopes to return to business as usual as soon as possible but
until that happens we cannot confirm when you will receive the outstanding
response. 

Please let us know if you no longer require the information, so the
request can be closed, if applicable.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time and stay safe.

You can ask for our decision to be reviewed under the Council’s [2]FOI &
EIR  Complaints Procedure. Please send your appeal reasons within 40
working days to the …
