Dear Carole

I refer to your recent Freedom of Information Request in which you requested the following:

b) Could I also have the information of those claiming/paying Council Tax on the Park Holidays Lakeside Caravan Park for the current 2018 year and 2017 and 2016 years.

Please find my response below:

01 01 17 to 31 12 17 = 16
01 01 18 to date = 8

I have not included accounts which were cancelled from the outset.

There are currently 6 open ended liabilities, 3 with exemptions.
