Thank you for your requests below. They will be handled as one request under the reference above in accordance with your rights under the above legislation and the Council's Environmental Information Regulations and Freedom of Information Request Handling Policy.

Under the above you are entitled to be informed if we hold the information or not, and if so, to have it provided to you within 20 working days from the date of receipt, subject to any exemptions.
