Dear Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities,

Thank you for your reply.

I am disappointed that you have refused the request on grounds of cost and provided very little advice and assistance.

Please conduct a review and consider whether your refusal on cost was lawful. I cannot see any evidence of how you believe it will take 24 hours to conduct reasonable and proportionate searches, for example, you haven’t confirmed if you have conducted a sample search exercise.

I would appreciate a review of your handling of the request and some advice and assistance. It is difficult to reframe my request when you haven’t provided any explanation of how your records are held.

Thank you
