Database of services

The request was refused by Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council.

Dear Rhondda Cynon Taff Council,

Please could you send me a spreadsheet with all support services commissioned by or connected to your council? e.g. drugs services, mental health, accommodation etc.

The information I need is: Categories (drugs/health); name; brief description; telephone number(s); email address(es); postal address (with post code); opening hours; other criteria (e.g. age groups/ethnicity/gender); and any other information that you hold (e.g. contact person).

I can send you a pen drive or other device if you need it.

I am requesting the same from all other local authorities in England because I am putting together a website with all of this information (free to access to the public - there will not be any charge for the local authority either). I am making this request as an individual, not as a business or organisation.

Yours faithfully,

Tay Jiva

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

We apologise for the delay in response to your Freedom of Information
Request in respect of a spreadsheet with all support services commissioned
by or connected to our Council.

 

Unfortunately, we are unable to supply the information requested. This
information is not recorded in a way that allows an electronic extraction
and would require each and every record to be reviewed manually. 
Therefore the total costs of providing the information to this part of
your request will exceed the “appropriate limit” as stated in the Freedom
of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees)
Regulations 2004.

 

Accordingly, in accordance with Section 17 of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 ("the Act") this e-mail acts as a Refusal Notice to that part of
your request.

 

It may be that we can supply some information if you can refine or reduce
your request to more manageable proportions and resubmit your request so
that it reduces the aggregate cost to within the "appropriate limit".  We
have discussed your request with relevant officers who have confirmed that
to meet your request and collate the information you have requested would
exceed well in excess of 18 hours.  It has been suggested that to
potentially fall within the “appropriate limit” you may wish to refine
your request by significantly reducing the number of departments you
require information for within your request.  

 

Also, if you still require some of the information requested, it has been
suggested that this information is likely to become out of date by the
time the information is set up on your website.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been
handled, you can request a review of the Council’s response.  If you wish
to exercise this right, please set out in writing your grounds and send
your appeal to Mrs Julie Llewellyn. She may be reached at
[1][email address] or at RCT CBC, Pavilions, Clydach Vale,
Tonypandy, CF40 2XX.

 

Additionally you may, if you wish, find out more about the Freedom of
Information Act & Environmental Information Regulations from the
Information Commissioner at

[2]http://www.ico.org.uk/

 

We trust this answers your queries.

 

Yours Sincerely

 

Carfan Llywodraethu Corfforaethol / Corporate Governance Team

ar ran Cyfarwyddwr Gwasanaethau Cyfreithiol a Llywodraethol / for Director
of Legal & Democratic Services
