Dear Mr Connor

 

Thank you for your request for information about Litter-Dog Fouling, which
we received on 14th October 2013, and which falls under the Environmental
Information Regulations 2004.

 

We are considering your request under the terms of the Environmental
Information Regulations 2004. You should receive the information requested
within 20 working days. However under Regulation 7 we can extend the
timescale for a response if the information is exempt, we require
additional time to consider whether disclosure is in the public interest
or the information requested is complex and additional time is needed for
collation.

 

Cardiff Council’s policy is to carry out the spirit and requirements of
the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, in a manner which:

- recognizes the duty to inform as the essential principle underlying the
legislation;

- discloses to requesters the maximum information possible which is not
injurious to the public and private interests identified in the exemptions
in the regulations and does so in the most timely and consistent manner
given the nature and scope of the request;

- ensures that fees permitted under the regulations are kept to an
absolute minimum whilst safeguarding our position as a non-profit making
organisation

We will try to supply information in electronic format by email, but if
this is not possible we will let you know. If you have any special
requirements e.g. language, audio, large print, etc. please let us know.

 

The Regulations define a number of exceptions which may prevent the
release of information. If any exceptions apply to your information
request they will be considered prior to disclosure. If any of the
exemption categories do apply an explanation for non-disclosure will be
included in the Decision Notice response you will receive, included in
this notice will be your right to seek an internal review of our decision.

 

If the information you request contains reference to a third party then
they may be consulted prior to a decision being taken on whether or not to
release the information to you. We will keep you informed if this issue
arises.

 

In some circumstances a fee may be payable for the information you have
requested, we will inform you of the details if and when appropriate. In
these circumstances you will have to pay the fee before we process and
release the information. The 20 working day time limit for responses will
not start until we receive your payment.

 

If you have any queries or concerns regarding the EIR please do not
hesitate to contact me.
