Dear City of York Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of City of York Council's handling of my FOI request 'Numbers waiting for rental accommodation'.

On the 28/8/18 I sent this request to ask about people on the council list waiting to get either an upgrade or downgrade from the property the presently occupy? City of York council in their wisdom have seen not fit to even reply to the request with anything other than the standard received email.
Since the council have found it in their wisdom to not reply I will give the council one last chance to reply with the answers.
It is a full 10 weeks since the request was submitted and I would like the answers to pass on to the person who asked me.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/n...

Yours faithfully,

Sarah Conner

Dear Ms Conner,
 
Thank you for your correspondence about the way the Council is dealing
with your information request.  You are concerned that the Council has not
responded to your request within the statutory time scale.
 
On review, it appears that the Council has not provided you with a
response with the statutory time scale.  I apologise for this.
 
I have now asked the service area to respond to your request as a matter
of priority within the next 20 working days.
 
The Council has a robust monitoring system in place to help ensure time
scales are met.  Council Officers also work hard to ensure the Council
meets statutory obligations.  Unfortunately, on limited occasions, meeting
timescales is not possible.  When this happens, late responses are logged,
reported on,   and feed into performance reviews, which allow us to take
steps, where necessary, to improve our processes.
 
Once again, I apologise for the delay. 
 
If you remain dissatisfied you can now contact the Information
Commissioner, contact details below:

Tel: 0303 123 1113 (local rate) or 01625 545 745 if you prefer to use a
