Dear Cardiff Council,

Thank you for the reply and that is really helpful but I'm a bit confused as you have referred to business rates.

My question is about homes (domestic dwellings) as was stated in the original application.

Yours faithfully,

Dear FOI,

Please can you let me know when this information will be dealt with as it is now massively outside of the 20 working day rule.

Dear Glyn Mottershead,

May we start by apologising for the late response to your email below.

We have reviewed our response and have established that we were correct in refusing the request under Section 21 (information accessible by other means). However the wording of the response could have been better on our part, as the information requested is in fact published under the heading Publication Scheme, Business rates which is confusing. The information requested is published as List 6C (Empty Council Tax by parish Postcode) and can be found at the bottom of the Business rates internet page:

https://www.cardiff.gov.uk/ENG/Your-Coun...

Please find attached the last quarters spreadsheet, as this is currently with our Web team to be published. House numbers are not published in accordance with Section 40 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Again, sorry for the confusion caused.

Regards
