any restrictions on how the funds may be used, e.g., to house venerable adults, 
repair roads, house asylum seekers, planting trees, etc.
The information requested is already in the public domain for the last eight years. WCC 
publish  financial accounts on WCC website every year and the website includes each 
year's accounts from 2014/15 onwards. The accounts include a note that sets out all the 
government grants we have received in year and can be accessed from the following

Finding, retrieving and preparing information takes employees' time and consequently 
we are allowed to consider costs. If, based upon an hourly rate of £25 the cost exceeds
the 'appropriate limit', then the public authority can refuse to fulfil the request. For Local

Therefore, we are not obliged to provide the information requested. In not providing this 
information the Council is relying upon Section 12 (1) of the Freedom of Information Act
2000, whereby the Council is not obliged to comply with a request for information if the 
Council estimates that the cost of complying would exceed the appropriate limit.
If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an 
internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted within 40 days of the date 
of receipt of the response to your original letter and should be addressed to:
Information Management
Shire Hall 
CV34 4RL
If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to 
apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information 
Commissioner can be contacted at: 
The Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, 
Cheshire, SK9 5AF. 
Phone: 0303 123 1113 
I will now close your request as of this date.
Yours faithfully
