Dear Falkirk Council,
Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to request the total number of noise complaints relating to vehicle noise, received by the council in the last year (2020).
If you require any further information or clarification, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002
We acknowledge receipt of your information request dated 17 February 2021. The Reference Number for this is 102908.
In terms of the relevant legislation, we have 20 working days to deal with your request from the date that we received it. Where possible, we will respond sooner. However, as you might expect, Covid-19 is currently impacting on our ability to respond to requests. This may be because staff are working from home and are therefore unable to carry out full searches for information or because staff are working on delivering essential front-line services. The Scottish Information Commissioner (who oversees compliance with FOI legislation in Scotland) has the ability to recognise any unavoidable reasons for delay in considering any appeals for non-compliance with statutory timescales.
Please therefore bear with us at this difficult time. If you are able to narrow the scope of your request, that would be very helpful and may mean we can respond to you more quickly. Alternatively, please consider withdrawing your request and resubmitting it once normal service has resumed.
If you would like to know how we treat your personal information, you can read more on the Council’s privacy webpage - https://www.falkirk.gov.uk/privacy/.
