Dear Oxford City Council,

Please provide me with any draft copies of the annual Oxford Source Apportionment Study that the council has in its possession. The report is due to be published at the end of July 2021, but I would like to read any pre-publication drafts that already exist.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Parnham

Dear Mr Parnham,

Oxford City Council – Reference: 10169

Thank you for your email. Your request was received on 7th June 2021 and you will be sent a response within 20 working days (of receipt) in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000/ Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR), subject to the information not being exempt or containing reference to a third party.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) recognises the unprecedented challenges all are facing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In particular they understand that resources, whether they are finances or people, may be diverted away from usual compliance or information rights work. Whilst the ICO can’t extend statutory timescales, they will not be penalising public authorities for prioritising other areas or adapting their usual approach during this extraordinary period.

Therefore while the Council will make every effort to comply with the Statutory Requirements you may experience understandable delays when making information rights requests during the pandemic.

Yours sincerely

Kathryn Winfield
Information Governance Requests Officer

Dear Mr Parnham,
 
Oxford City Council – Reference: 10169
 
Further to the acknowledgement below, it is more proper to consider your
request in accordance with the Environmental Information Regulations 2004
(EIR), rather than the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  Therefore, I can
respond to your  EIR request received on 7th June 2021 as follows:
 
Please provide me with any draft copies of the annual Oxford Source
Apportionment Study that the council has in its possession. The report is
due to be published at the end of July 2021, but I would like to read any
pre-publication drafts that already exist.
 
We only have one Oxford Source Apportionment Study, and this has already
been published on the website, please see link below:

The next update to the Oxford Source Apportionment Study will be
approximately in six years’ time, it is not an annual study.
 
If you disagree with any part of the response to your request, you are
entitled to ask the Council for an internal review of the decision(s)
made.  You may do this by writing to the Monitoring Officer, by either
email – [email address] – or by post to Monitoring Officer, Oxford
City Council, St Aldate’s Chambers, St Aldate’s, Oxford, OX1 1DS.  After
the result of the internal review, if you remain dissatisfied, you may ask
the Information Commissioner to intervene on your behalf.  You may do this
by writing to the Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
 
Yours sincerely
