Dear Durham Constabulary,

I would be grateful if you are able to provide me the following data under the Freedom of Information Act:

For March 2020 onwards, information on every planned protest or march ('protest') in your area that police have been formally made aware of, including:

1. Whether the protest was authorised by the police,
2. The purpose or affiliation of the protest,
3. The date and location of the protest,
4. Whether the protest took place,
5. If the protest took place:
a). The number of arrests made at the protest,
b). The number of cautions made at the protest,
c). Whether any fine was issued to the organisers.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, it would be great if you could provide advice and assistance, under Section 16, as to how I can better word the request.

Yours faithfully,

Ben van der Merwe

Freedom of Information,

Due to the Coronavirus/COVID 19 pandemic and the  changing circumstances 
for all, the Unit must prioritise essential safeguarding work for the 
health and social care sector, and also for the Family Court. Delays in 
other areas are likely to occur and may fall outside any statutory or 
other expected timescales. We apologise for any inconvenience this may 
cause, we will of course endeavour to process your request as soon as 
practicable. If your request is not urgent or can be retracted at any 
stage, please let us know as soon as possible via our published email 
addresses. From 5^th January 2021, the majority of our staff are working
from home due to the lockdown position and we will only have very limited
numbers of staff in the Office occasionally and we will  therefore not be
able to regularly collect correspondence sent via post. We thank  you for
your understanding and support and wish you and your family well  during
these uncertain times.
