I am very concerned over this reply, firstly I would suggest you make a request for a review. I am very aware as a former town councillor the clerk is very aware of my long history while serving and off the council into this location.

I have spent many years with others on this matter and she is aware and has it well documented in minutes over the last approx 8 years .

I find it appalling that she expects you to manually search any online documents, indeed she has many emails, reports and minutes that can give you further information. This includes a privatly funded report from a Highways Law expert.

Dear Cullompton Town Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Cullompton Town Council's handling of my FOI request 'Highway adoption'.

I have become aware that the Cullompton Town Council hold a number of records and/or documentation pertaining to the subject matter of my FOI request and have denied holding such information.

It is also noted that several records of minuted meetings are also in the Cullompton Town Councils possession and request that as a public authority, Judy Morris as Town Clerk provide public assistance by providing or directing me to the appropriate minutes.

thank you

PC
