Section 21 states:

(1) Information which is readily available to the applicant otherwise than
under section 1 is exempt information.

(2) For the purposes of subsection (1)-

(a) information may be reasonably accessible to the applicant even though
it is accessible only on payment, and

(b) information is to be taken to be reasonably accessible to the
applicant if it is information which the public authority or any other
person is obliged by or under any enactment to communicate (otherwise than
by making the information available for inspection) to members of the
public on request, whether free of charge or upon payment.

(3) For the purposes of subsection (1), information which is held by a
public authority and does not fall within subsection (2)(b) is not to be
regarded as reasonably accessible to the applicant merely because the
information is available from the public authority itself on request,
unless the information is made available in accordance with the
authority’s publication scheme and any payment required is specified in,
or determined in accordance with, the scheme.

This acts as an exemption notice. Subsection 1 means that the Council is
relieved of the duty to communicate the requested information to an
applicant if there is an existing method

by which the information can be obtained, outside of the operation of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. This is an absolute exemption and
therefore does not require the public interests balancing test to be
applied. We confirm that the requested information can be accessed through
our public website, using the above link.

We hope you will find this information helpful.
