Farm welfare offences

Carlisle City Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Carlisle City Council,

I hope you're well.

I am looking for information relating to farm welfare offences for 2019 and 2020. For each offence, I am looking for:

- The name and address
- A brief description of the offence
- The relevant laws or regulations
- The result.

As an example, you can see here that I have gathered the data for 2014 to 2018 here:

If any information cannot be provided due to data protection, please omit that but include the other details for each one (ie, if names cannot be provided, I would still like a summary of the offence and the other details that can be provided).

Yours faithfully,

Robyn Vinter

Carlisle City Council
