How many of these applications were refused in 2019, 2018 & 2017?

As the information is published online, it is considered that Section 21
of the FOIA applies, ‘information reasonably accessible by other means’.
The purpose of the section 21 exemption is to ensure that there is no
right of access to information via FOIA, if it is available to the
applicant by another route. Section 21 is an absolute exemption which
means there is no requirement to carry out a public interest test if the
requested information is exempt. Information available via a Government
publication scheme is considered to be reasonably accessible.

You have the right under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
to ask for an internal review of the refusal of the information requested.
Please direct any request for an internal review to
[2][Wirral Borough Council request email] and your request will be allocated for
review.  If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of an internal review
you also have the right to complain to the information Commissioner, who
can be contacted at [3]https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/

Yours sincerely
