Dear Mr Scott,

I write further to your communication dated 22 June 2015, regarding
candidate’s spending returns for the recent Parish Council election in
 Bradfield.   

Whilst Returning Officers are not a public authority under the Freedom of
Information Act and, as such, are exempt from the disclosure requirements
imposed by it, I can confirm that access to spending returns is already
permitted under other legislation.

As such, the documents, which must be retained for 12 months after their
receipt in the case of a Parish Council election, are held at the Town
Hall, Clacton on Sea, CO15 1SE and are available for inspection without
charge during office opening hours ( 8.45am to 5.15pm Monday to Thursday
and between 8.45am and 4.45pm on Fridays, excluding bank holidays). 
Alternatively, copies can be supplied upon payment of the prescribed fee,
which is currently 20 pence per side.

I hope I have been of assistance and should you wish to purchase copies of
the returns, please let me know and I will provide details of the total
cost and payment methods.

Yours sincerely

 

Alison Rowlands
