Dear Mrs Holder

I am in rceiept of your freedom of information dated 11/04/2011. I have
provided the information you have requested for accounts that do not
relate to private individuals or sole traders. I have not provided details
relating to properties that relate to private individuals as I am applying
the decision of the Information Tribunal, copy attached.

The information relating to properties occupied by private individuals and
sole traders has been withheld because:

It is personal information and disclosure would not be fair under the Part
1 Schedule 1 to the Data Protection Act 1998; condition 6 in Schedule 2 to
the Data Protection Act 1998 is not made out in this case as disclosure
would be unwarranted because of prejudice to individuals, both in terms of
the impact upon them emotionally, financially and in respect of potential
damage to property. This is not outweighed by the legitimate interests of
you or any other members of the public to whom this information might be
disclosed.

I hope that you are satisfied with the way in which your request for
information has been dealt with. If not, the Council has decided that any
complaint regarding requests for information that cannot be dealt with
satisfactorily on an informal basis should be dealt with in accordance
with its established complaints procedure. Details of our complaints
procedure may be found at:
[1]http://www.woking.gov.uk/council/about/c... .
Alternatively, I can forward you a paper copy of a leaflet giving details.
I am also happy to discuss any queries that you may have regarding how we
have dealt with your request for information. In addition, you may apply
to the Information Commissioner for a decision whether your request for
information has been dealt with in accordance with the requirements of the
Act (although I understand that the Information Commissioner may decline
to become involved if you have not first exhausted the Council's
complaints procedure). The Information Commissioner may be contacted at
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF; tel. 01625
545745; fax. 01625 524510; e-mail. [2][email address]
