Dear Natalie,

Unfortunately your request was mis- directed within the Authority and
therefore I apologise that It has not been possible to meet your request
within the specified timescale.

The Council's business rates team will now be looking at your request with
regards to empty commercial premises but regrettably will not be able to
supply name and address details due to the Data Protection Act.

Colleagues will be in touch as soon as possible.

Kind regards
Richard Combes BSc MRICS
Estates manager
St Edmundsbury Borough Council

Urquhart, Hayley,

Dear Natalie

I have just been forwarded your request which unfortunately has been sat
in the wrong department.

In order that I can supply the information can you please clarify whether
you want just properties that are liable to empty rate or do you need the
ones that are also exempt from paying.

I will be able to expedite your request as soon as I receive this
confirmation

Many thanks

Hi Natalie

Thank you for your email clarifying the information you require. I
apologise for the delay in my response.

I attach two spreadsheets - one showing the empty properties and the RV's
where the RV's are over £15,000 and the second showing the empty
properties where the RV's are under £15,000.

Under data protection I can only release companies names where the company
is either LTD or PLC, so this is all I have included.

I hope this is sufficient.
