The information is exempt under Section 21 of the Freedom of Information

information. It provides much information outside the provisions of the
Freedom of Information Act and it will continue to do on a “business as

access all reasonable information about the Council and its services.
If, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with our response, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
