Dear Southwark Borough Council,
I should like to know how many General Exception Notices have been issued by the Council in each of the last five years, ideally broken down by department /area (but not if that would make the task unduly onerous), and whether all of these notices were made available to the public / published on the council website prior to the relevant decisions being made.
I am concerned that the council is only now putting on its website exception notices relating to decisions made six months ago, and that the number of exception notices seems to be increasing.
Thank you for your email.

I would point you to the ICO guidance on this issue which clearly states that an initial and surname are sufficient. For what it’s worth my first name is Samantha.
