Dear Ms Smith

 

Freedom of Information Request ENQ-347434-F0V3K0

 

I refer to your request for information dated 11 July 2019.  I apologise
for the delay in our response.  I am sending the information in 3 batches
due to the size of the documents.

 

You asked for:

 

all correspondence regarding the purchase of the ALP, the date it came on
the run, Modifications that were required for it to meet NFRS's Spec, and
what has happened to the old ALP. (If sold / Scrapped, how much this cost)
Correspondence from the last 2 1/2 years would be good

 

Our response:

 

Please see attached information.  You will note that some information has
been redacted under Section 40 of the FOI Act which states that the
Council is not required to disclose the personal information of either the
requester or any other individual if disclosure would contravene the
rights of the individuals to whom the data relates.

 

In this case the redacted information is the personal data of staff below
tier 3 in the organisation.  Staff below tier 3 have a reasonable
expectation that their details will not be disclosed in the public domain,
it is not necessary for the information to be disclosed in order for you
to understand the nature of the correspondence and it would therefore be
unfair and unlawful to disclose this information.

 

If you are dissatisfied with our handling of your request you have the
right of appeal through the Council’s internal review procedure by setting
out the grounds of your appeal in writing to:

 

[email address]

or Information Compliance Team

Room 043

County Hall

Martineau Lane

Norwich

NR1 2DH

 

An appeal should be submitted within 40 working days of the date of this
notice and should be identified as "FOI Appeal".

 

If you are dissatisfied after pursuing the complaints procedure, you may
apply to the Information Commissioner under Section 50 of the Act for a
decision whether your request for information has been dealt with in
accordance with the requirements of Part I of the Act.  Refer to the ICO
Website at: https://ico.org.uk/concerns/ for advice on how to report a
concern.  Or you can write to them at:
