Dear Olly James

 

Thank you for your freedom of information request, we trust this finds you

Your request has been passed to the relevant council department(s) however

unavoidable delays with responding to your request as we would of usually
anticipated.

While your statutory right of access remains unchanged, our resources may
be diverted away from usual compliance or information rights work at this
