Flag Policy

Jimmy Reid made this Freedom of Information request to Carmarthenshire Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for Jimmy Reid to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Carmarthenshire Council,

In the newspaper I have seen a reference to a flag policy you have adopted, in which there is a procedure for making requests to fly flags from council buildings.

Please confirm when that policy was adopted by the council.

Please confirm how many requests have been made and by whom under the provisions of that policy to fly flags from council buildings.

Please confirm how many requests were made and by whom for flags to be flown from council buildings in the three years before the policy was put in place.

In both instances, where the policy was in place and in the three years before the policy was put in place, please let me know how many of the requests made have been rejected and why they were rejected.

Yours faithfully,

Jimi Reid

Dear Carmarthenshire Council,

I sent a Freedom of Information Act request on 20th August and I have not had an acknowledgement for it.

Please confirm that I will receive the information requested on or by 19th September 2016.

Yours faithfully,

Jimi Reid

Dear Carmarthenshire Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Carmarthenshire Council's handling of my FOI request 'Flag Policy'.

You have failed to respond as required or at all to my request.

I will make a complaint to the ICO if you do not now respond promptly and in full.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...

Yours faithfully,

Jimmy Reid

1. Please confirm when that policy was adopted by the council."

10th July, 2015.

"2. Please confirm how many requests have been made and by whom under the provisions of that policy to fly flags from council buildings."

There have been two requests.- one from a community group called CETMA (Community Engagement, Media, Technology & Arts) and the other from Seafarers UK.

"3. Please confirm how many requests were made and by whom for flags to be flown from council buildings in the three years before the policy was put in place."
