Dear Harshal

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST - INTERNAL REFERENCE 305598

Your request for information will not be processed and in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 this email acts as a Refusal Notice.

This is because the cost of locating, retrieving and extracting the information exceeds the "appropriate limit" as stated in the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit) Regulations 2004. The estimated time required to meet your request has been identified as 2,082 minutes (or 34 hours and 42 minutes). This is due to needing to manually check each address for the remaining information and there being 694 addresses, as shown in the attached spreadsheet.

We are however able to provide a list of addresses, rateable values and description for empty commercial properties. We've attached this in a spreadsheet to this response. If you would like the remaining information on only some of the properties, within the limits of the Act, based on the above explanation, we can of course provide this to you.

If you have a complaint about the handling of your request then please contact me within the next 40 working days and I'll arrange for an internal review which will be considered as part of Stage 2 of the Council's complaints procedure.

You also have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner at:
