Dear Phil Grafton,

Ok Phil... Looks like you want to be pedantic...

As a resident within the area I pay council tax (my property is band C). The council put my money into a source pool... And pay money to individual contractors,. Persons, organisations.

Do the council have a set of audited accounts detailing money in and out? And if so. Why hasn't the council disclosed them, or provided a refusal notice.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Pearsall

Phil Grafton, Stratford on Avon District Council

Dear Mr Pearsall

My role is to determine the internal review of your initial request. In doing so I have given some latitude, by not treating the wording of your appeal as a new FOI request. You are now asking what would obviously be a new request, but to be helpful please find a link to the Council website that you may find useful:-

https://www.stratford.gov.uk/council-dem...

As this information is already in the public domain, technically this would constitute a refusal to disclosure under the FOI legislation.

My role in this matter is now at an end. Any further requests on this topic will need to be treated as a new FOI request.

Yours sincerely

Phil Grafton
