Dear Mr Raffal

Thank you for your email of 22nd November which read as follows:

Can you confirm this request is still open given your response to

the request shown at the url below does not deal with it.

[1]http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/ev...

I apologise for the omission in our FOI response which covered the FOI
requests you made. I am writing to confirm that the response to
your request is as follows:

The council did not collect any evidence in order to judge the graffiti
on the wall of 203 Hackney Road to be detrimental to the amenity of the
area. Therefore the requested information is not held.
If you are dissatisfied with this response and wish to appeal, please
write to the Information Governance Team, Appeals, 3rd Floor, Maurice
Bishop House, Reading Lane, London, E8 1HH and your complaint will be
dealt with through our Internal Review procedure.

If you are still not satisfied following the Internal Review, you have a
right to appeal to the Information Commissioner. He can be contacted at:

Information Commissioner's Office
