Dear Mr Sean Wilson ,

Ref:FOI003377 Freedom of Information Request for a review

 

Thank you for your email received in our office on 30^th December, 2020
concerning  your request for the following information;

 

Please could you send me the amount of money SBC has provided to Covingham
Library each year since 2010.

 

I am in the process of investigating why you did not receive a response to
your Freedom of Information request within the statutory, which in this
case was 29^th December, 2020.

 

The complaints / review procedure has two stages. Initially, it involves a
full review by me, to establish why the information was not sent to you
within the statutory 20-day period. I have also been in contact with the
Officers concerned and have established the Council holds the information
you have requested and we aim to get it to you as soon as possible, or no
later than 12 January, 2021.

 

If I cannot resolve the matter to your satisfaction, you also have the
option of referring it to the Information Governance Manager
[1][email address]

 

If you are not content with how we resolve this matter, you may apply
directly to the Information Commissioner's Office, before we have
completed our review. Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision on how we
dealt with your request unless you have exhausted the Council's own
complaints procedure first.

As advised below I have reviewed the reason for the delay in responding to
your request.

There is no evidence that the request did not follow the procedures the
Council has in place to insure we respond within the statutory period.

However, due to unplanned staff absence we were unable to complete the
request within the deadline.

The Council takes our responsibilities under the Act very seriously and we
are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

 

I hope this resolves the matter to your satisfaction, as previously
