Dear Rhys Thomas

Further to your request for information below, I would like to assure you that we do intend to answer this request.

Following a reorganisation of local government in Dorset, this response is from Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council. Therefore the information provided will cover these 3 areas.

Unfortunately it is taking us longer to gather the information than expected, in the main this is due to the fact that we need to collate information from all three councils.

We don't expect it to take longer than 10 more working days to rectify this and have the information collated and sent to you. If there is any further delay we will of course keep you updated.

Apologies for the delay, thanks for your patience with us.

Yours sincerely

Julie Davis
