Dear Mr Landick ,

I acknowledge your request for information received on 08/06/2017.

Please be aware that under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (“the Act”)
a public body has 20 working days following the date of receipt  within
which to respond to a request for information.   If appropriate, the
information may be provided in paper copy, normal font size. If you
require alternative formats, e.g. language, audio, large print, etc. then
please let me know.

 

For your information, the Act defines a number of exemptions that may
prevent release of the information you have requested. There will be an
assessment and if any of the exemption categories apply then the
information will not be released. You will be informed if this is the
case, including your rights of appeal.   If the information you request
contains reference to a third party then the third party may be consulted
prior to a decision being taken on whether or not to release the
information to you. You will be informed if this is the case.

There may be a fee payable for the information requested. This will be
considered and you will be informed if a fee is payable. In this event the
fee must be paid before the information is processed and released. The 20
working day time limit referred to above will be suspended until receipt
of the cleared payment.

Please note that the legislation allows access to information “held” by
the Council and not for the creation of new information or opinion.  
Therefore we may only be able to supply documents or data that contain the
