Case Reference Number IRQ0272322

Dear Mr Lizar

I write with reference to your recent request for information concerning
decision notices relating to complaints concerning CCTV.

Specifically your request asked for ‘the number of decision notices
there have
been regarding Open Street CCTV cameras since the DPA came into
effect.  In addition to a request for what these decisions were’.

It may be helpful to explain that when a complaint is made against a
public authority, the ICO investigates the facts behind the complaint and
may then issue a decision notice. This is the Commissioner's final view on
whether or not the public authority has complied with the Freedom of
Information Act or the Environmental Information Regulations.  

Therefore, as a decision notice will only be served as a result of a
complaint concerning breaches of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or
Environmental Information Regulations there will be no information held
which falls within the scope of your request.

It may also be helpful to explain for future reference that all the
decision notices served are displayed on our website :
