Farm welfare offences

Elmbridge Borough Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Elmbridge Borough 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

Dear Robyn Vinter

Thank you for your request under the 2000 Act made on 26 May 2021 concerning farm welfare offences.

Please be advised that the information you are requesting is not held at Elmbridge Borough Council. Surrey County Council may hold the information you are seeking.

If you have not already done so, you may wish to submit your request directly to Surrey County Council at the following address:

Freedom of Information Officer

Surrey, KT1 2DN

In the alternative, you also have the option to submit your request using the Freedom of Information Form available online on the Surrey County Council website or email your request to the Freedom of Information Officer at [email address]

The Council operates a presumption of openness in its access to information. It provides much information outside the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act and it will continue to do on a “business as usual” basis. Persons do not need to engage the statutory provisions to access all reasonable information about the Council and its services.

If, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with our response, you have the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your original letter and should be addressed to the Law Practice Manager, Elmbridge Borough Council, Civic Centre, High Street, Esher, Surrey KT10 9SD.

Should you then remain dissatisfied at the outcome of that process, you are entitled to appeal against the decision by contacting:
The Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
