Dear Mr Heath,
Thank you for your request for information, our reference 5722, received on 25/10/2018.
Your request has now been considered and the information can be found attached.

H - Hackney plates
P - Private Hire plates
PHE - Private Hire Executive
SE - Limos

The Council is refusing to provide the registration numbers and addresses on the basis that it would be a contravention of s40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please also note that the number of seats has not been provided as this is not recorded in a way that can be easily extracted. The Council has estimated that the cost of complying with the request by undergoing the manual process of extracting this information would exceed the appropriate limit, and under section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, we are not obliged to comply.

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint or request an internal review of our decision, you should write to the Communications section, Broxbourne Borough Council, Bishops’ College, Churchgate, Cheshunt, EN8 9XQ.
