Freedom Of Information, East Lothian Council

Our Ref:  2018/011(13074)

 

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION (SCOTLAND) ACT 2002

ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION (SCOTLAND) REGULATIONS 2004

 

Thank you for your enquiry of 3 January.

 

I am sorry that I have not had an earlier opportunity to reply, however,
in order for East Lothian Council to begin processing your request please
provide your full name.  Under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002, requests for information are only valid if the applicant provides
their real name and a contact address.  I have provided an extract from
the website of the Scottish Information Commissioner for your
information: 

 

[1]Do I have to provide my real name and my full address when I ask for
information?

 

The FOI Act says that a request must include the name of the applicant and
an address for correspondence. In terms of your address, either your full
postal address or your email address will be fine.

 

You will need to provide your full real name. If you don't use your real
name the authority won't have to provide the information, and you won't be
able to appeal to the Commissioner. At the very least, your request should
include your initial and your surname.

 

If you send your request by email, remember to put your name in the text
of the email. Even if your name appears in your email address (e.g.
[2][email address]) you must add your name to the text of your
request, so that it is clear who the email is from.

 

Upon receipt of this information I will register your enquiry and refer it
to the appropriate department for action.  In the meantime, I have
provided a link to the Emergency Planning page of East Lothian Council’s
website which may be of interest to you:
