Thank you for your request for information above. The appropriate
department have dealt with your request under the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act (FOI) 2000 and from our assessment we estimate that to
locate, retrieve and extract the information for questions 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,
7 and 17 would exceed the ‘appropriate limit’ set for local government at
£450 which represents 18hrs of one staff member. Section 12 of the FOI Act
provides a refusal exemption on this basis.

Cambridge City Council is able to provide answers to the remaining
questions. I hope the attached will answer your queries.

We aim to provide a high quality service to you and hope that you are
satisfied with this response. If you have any further questions please do
not hesitate to contact us.

Yours sincerely
