Dear Ms Davis

I refer to your freedom of information request, detailed below.

The Business Rates database holds the names of liable parties, but does not hold details of the owners of the properties they occupy. Details of the owners of properties are available via a land registry search. However I understand that a fee of £8.00 is charged for each search. Further information regarding the land registry can be found here

I have attached a spreadsheet which provides details of the liable companies for all properties with historic credits on their accounts. The spreadsheet does not show details of the owners of the properties for the reasons outlined above. I have only provided this information which relates to limited companies. I have not provided information relating to private individuals because I am applying the decision of an Information Tribunal, copy attached.

It is personal information and disclosure would not be fair under the Part 1 Schedule 1 to the Data Protection Act 1998; condition 6 in Schedule 2 to the Data Protection Act 1998 is not made out in this case as disclosure would be unwarranted because of prejudice to individuals, both in terms of the impact upon them emotionally, financially and in respect of potential damage to property. This is not outweighed by the legitimate interests of you or any other members of the public to whom this information might be disclosed.

I hope that you are satisfied with the way in which your request for information has been dealt with. If not, the Council has decided that any complaint regarding requests for information that cannot be dealt with satisfactorily on an informal basis should be dealt with in accordance with its established complaints procedure. Details of our complaints procedure may be found at: . Alternatively, I can forward you a paper copy of a leaflet giving details. I am also happy to discuss any queries that you may have regarding how we have dealt with your request for information. In addition, you may apply to the Information Commissioner for a decision whether your request for information has been dealt with in accordance with the requirements of the Act (although I understand that the Information Commissioner may decline to become involved if you have not first exhausted the Council's complaints procedure). The Information Commissioner may be contacted at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF; tel. 01625 545745; fax. 01625 524510; e-mail. [email address]
