Dear Ms Davis,

Thank you for your request for information, received on 8th July 2010.

You have requested that we provide you with the following information:

(a) addresses and rateable values of empty Commercial properties
with a current rateable value greater than £50,000 that are within
Lancaster City Council area; and

(b) the names and addresses of the owners of those properties
referred to in (a)

Please find attached a spreadsheet of those properties which meet your
specified criteria, excluding details of any owners who are individuals.

I must advise you that I consider that the Council would not be able to
disclose personal information relating to private individuals as personal
information about their identity and financial affairs is protected by
Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. This exemption
applies where the disclosure of the information, so far as it comprises or
contains personal information about individuals, would contravene one or
more of the data protection principles under the Data Protection Act 1998,
including the principle that information should be processed fairly and
lawfully. Without the consent of an individual ratepayer, I do not
consider that the release of this information into the public domain under
FOIA could be justified under any of the processing conditions provided
under Schedule 2 of the Data Protection Act.

If you are not happy with this response please contact Rosebella Kotonya,
by emailing [email address], in the first instance. If you are
still not satisfied you have the right to ask for an internal review of
the decision. This will be dealt with by the Head of Legal and Human
Resources. If your appeal is not resolved you would then have the further
right of appeal to the Information Commissioner for an independent review

Yours sincerely
