Dear Mr Sutherland

 

Thank you for your information request of 22 October 2018.  Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested. Our response is now detailed below.

 

Please could you list by percentage with total along side the breakdown of
the type of fuel used by Aberdeen City licensed taxis/cabs/phv currently
in operation.

For example:

Electric % (total number),

Hybrid % (total number),

Petrol % (total number),

Diesel % (total number),

Hydrogen % (total number).

This information is not a required field on our applications and is
therefore not recorded for every vehicle.  However, we have 1,133 licensed
vehicles as of 29 October 2018 broken down as follows:

 

Electric 0.1% (1),

Hybrid 0.2% (2),

Petrol 1.3% (15),

Diesel 26.8% (304),

Hydrogen 0% (0)

Not Recorded 71.6% (811)

 

ACC is unable to provide you with information on the breakdown of the type
of fuel used by every Aberdeen City licensed taxis/cabs/phv as it is not
held by the Council.  In order to comply with its obligations under the
terms of Regulation 10(4)(a) - Information Not Held - of the EIRs, ACC
hereby gives notice that this information is not held by it.  ACC is
required by Regulation 10(1)(b) of the EIRs to inform you as to why in all
the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining this
exception outweighs the public interest in disclosing this information to
you.  ACC is satisfied that it does not hold this information and
considers that, as there is no information held, the public interest lies
with the exception.

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Anna Buchan

Information Compliance Officer

 

INFORMATION ABOUT THE HANDLING OF YOUR REQUEST

 

As the information which you requested is environmental information, as
defined under Regulation 2(1) of the Environmental Information (Scotland)
Regulations 2004 (the EIRs), ACC considered that it was exempt from
release through FOISA, and must therefore give you notice that we are
refusing  your request under Section 39(2) of FOISA (Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002).  However, you have a separate right to
access the information which you have requested under Regulation 5 of the
EIRs, under which ACC has handled your request. Please refer to the
attached PDF for more information about your rights under the EIRs.
