Dear Yanis,

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST REF No: 358516

Thank you for your information request, received on 16th October 2010

You requested the following information:

I would like a list of every food business in your borough which is
currently operating. On the list I would like the following
information on every business:

1. Address and postcode
2. Name
3. Date of last inspection
4. Score of last inspection
5. Class use of business (a1 or a3)
6. Brief description of business

Please find the attached spreadsheet with all the information we hold regarding food businesses. We can only give a list of all properties where planning permission has been granted for A1 (shop, e.g. sandwich bar) and A3 (café, restaurant).

Class A1 covers all retail, not just those selling food, as it's not possible to segregate under our records.

In addition, it won't cover every premise in the borough as some uses have operated for a very long time and don't have official consent. Others have changed from one use to another under PD so we wouldn't have a record.

You may also be able to find additional information on the Scores on the Doors website. I have provided the link for you below.

I hope this has been of assistance!

If you have a complaint about the handling of this information request, please contact: Information Complaints, Corporate Resources, 60 Highbury New Park, London, N5 2DJ. Email: [email address]

Further information is also available from the Information Commissioner's Office, at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. Telephone: 01625 545 700. Web: www.ico.gov.uk <outbind://5/www.ico.gov.uk> <outbind://1/www.ico.gov.uk> <outbind://6/www.ico.gov.uk> .

Dear FOIA,

I would like to refine my request, I was not looking for a list of planning applications. Basically I would like a list of the address of every operating cafe in islington and the date of the last inspection. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Janis,

Unfortunately the information we hold is not in the format you require as our IT system do not hold details by the type of occupant. It would exceed our time constraints to fulfil your request.

If you could possibly narrow your criteria to perhaps a more defined area, e.g. upper street, we may be able to provide this information.

You can also request by risk categories, with A and B being the high risk categories. You can see the premises details for the categories on scores on the doors. I have provided the link below.

http://www.scoresonthedoors.org.uk/counc...

If you could advise me of how you wish to proceed, I'm more than happy to assist with your request.

Thanks!

Hi Janis,

As advised in my previous email, we don't hold information by type of
occupant. For example, Cafes.

To provide you a list of Cafes in the borough would exceed our time
constraints as we do not hold information in this format. If you could
narrow down an area of cafes in the borough, for example cafes in upper
street, we may be able to provide the information. If you could advise
what area you wish to concentrate on, we can find the information for
you.

Thanks,

Dear FOIA,

How about every type of food business without going by any type of occupant? Would that be possible?

Hi Janis,

Unfortunately we cannot provide information by type of food either. You
can obtain the information by road/address from scores on the doors and
then we can provide any reports that you would like for identified
premises. If you would prefer to talk it over so we can help you
decide, some of my colleagues can contact you directly?

Here is the link for scores on the doors too -

http://www.scoresonthedoors.org.uk/counc...

Let me know and we can go from here!

Dear Janis

Thank you for further refining your request for information.

Please find attached a list of caterers - we don't categorise premises as cafes so this list will include other premises such as restaurants, takeaways, pubs etc

The scores on the doors website that we referred you to as part of our response to FOIA 358516 should provide you with the last date of inspection and inspection score. If you find that some addresses on the list are not appearing on the the scores on the doors website they are either new premises & premises that have changed hands and are due for inspection or premises that are very low risk that have not been inspected since we started putting our data on the website a few years ago.

The link to scores on the doors website is http://www.scoresonthedoors.org.uk/counc...

Dear Janis

Since I last emailed you we have been working on our database and I can
now provide the information on cafes in the borough.

The spreadsheet contains the premises names and addresses of cafes in
