Dear Mr McCarthy,

 

Thank you for your information request of 13 October 2017.  Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested.

 

Under the Freedom of Information Act, please provide me with details of—

a) the number of anti-social behaviour 'mosquito' devices known by the
council to be installed or otherwise in regular operation within the
council's area; and

ACC do not hold any records on the number of mosquito devices that are
installed or otherwise in regular operation within the council’s area.
There is no legislative requirement to register these devices with the
local authority.

 

b) the locations of these devices.

ACC do not hold any records on the location of mosquito devices that are
installed or otherwise in regular operation within the council’s area.
There is no legislative requirement to register these devices with the
local authority.

 

ACC is unable to provide you with information on the number of anti-social
behaviour 'mosquito' devices known by the council to be installed or
otherwise in regular operation within the council's area; and the
locations of these devices as it is not held by the Council.  In order to
comply with its obligations under the terms of Regulation 10(4)(a) -
Information Not Held - of the EIRs, ACC hereby gives notice that this
information is not held by it.  ACC is required by Regulation 10(1)(b) of
the EIRs to inform you as to why in all the circumstances of the case, the
public interest in maintaining this exception outweighs the public
interest in disclosing this information to you.  ACC is satisfied that it
does not hold this information and considers that, as there is no
information held, the public interest lies with the exception.

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Grant Webster

Information Compliance Officer
