Guidance Notes:-

How we will deal with your Request

When we receive your request, we will check it to make sure that you have provided your name and address and have clearly described the information that you require. We may need to contact you for further information if your request is not clear. We will then send you an acknowledgement and tell you when we expect to be able to deal with your request.

We will make a search of our records to establish whether the Council holds the information you have requested. If the Council does not hold the information, we may suggest other authorities who may hold the information, or if you agree, we may transfer your request to the authority who does hold the information you require.

If the Council does hold the information you have requested, we will make it available to you, either by providing copies of it, a digest of it, or by inviting you in to the Council’s offices to inspect it. We will try as far as possible to comply with your preference on how the information is made available to you.

Time Limit for Dealing with your Request

In most cases, the Council is obliged to deal with your request within 20 working days of receiving it. If we cannot deal with it within that timescale, we will let you know and provide an estimate of when we expect to be able to deal with it.

Fees for Dealing with your Request

Most information will be provided free of charge. However, if a fee is payable, we will let you know as soon as possible.

The Council will not charge a fee if it decides not to provide you with the information because it is ‘exempt’ under the Act (see below).

Circumstances in which the Council may refuse your Request

Some categories of information are treated as ‘exempt’ under the Freedom of Information Act. This means that the Act does not allow access to such information and the Council may refuse to disclose information which falls into these categories. The following are examples of exempt information:

- Information that is available to you through other means e.g. from the Council’s web pages or Publication Scheme;
- Personal information relating to a living individual;
- Information which may, if disclosed, prejudice commercial interests.

There are 23 categories of exempt information in the Act. In some cases, the Council may only refuse to disclose information if it is in the public interest to do so. A panel of senior Council officers will decide whether information is exempt or not.

If the Council is of the view that the information you have requested is exempt and should not be disclosed, you will be sent a Refusal Notice. This will explain why the Council believes the information is exempt.

The Council is also not obliged to deal with requests:
- Which are vexatious or repeated;
- Which will result in a cost to the Council which exceeds a statutory limit;
- Where you have not responded to a request from the Council for assistance in identifying the information you require.

Complaints

If you are unhappy with the way in which the Council has dealt with a Freedom of Information request, you can ask for a review of your case by contacting [Wrexham Council request email] or by telephoning 01978 292000. If you are still unhappy you may take the matter further by contacting the Internal Review Team, who will arrange for the matter to be investigated (01978 292000).

If you are unhappy with the outcome of your complaint using the above procedure, you may complain directly to the Information Commissioner. The Information Commissioner will generally require you to pursue the matter through the Council’s complaints procedure, as above, before he will consider the matter.
