Dear Ms Feta,

 

Thank you for your recent request for information. Please find enclosed
the information you are entitled to receive under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 / Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

 

We trust that we have answered your queries, however if you have any
further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

If you are unhappy with the response to your request, you may ask for an
internal review within 40 working days of receipt of this request. Please
contact Mr Jeff Wring, Service Director – One West, at Lewis House,
Manvers St, Bath BA1 1JG, or by email to: [1][email address]

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to appeal directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. Or through their website:
[2]www.ico.org.uk

 

Please refer to the disclaimer regarding reuse which can be found on the
Council website at:

As you are aware we are experiencing a National Emergency situation and
the Council is now focused solely on minimising the impact of the Covid-19
pandemic on our local communities.  Bath and North East Somerset Council
has indeed formally declared the current situation a major incident in
accordance with the 2004 Civil Contingencies Act and as a result, all
Council resources are now prioritised only on business-critical activity
to protect the most vulnerable. 

 

Therefore in terms of responding to any further requests, please note that
almost all Council staff are no longer in the office and are working
remotely, either with limited access to information, or in some cases
self-isolating, with ongoing impacts on availability, capacity and officer
time, across all services.

 

In addition, please note that the Information Governance Team has delayed
access to hard copy letters.  As a result, we recommend that any Subject
Access Requests, Freedom of Information Act Requests/Environmental
Information Requests or Data Breach Reports are only sent to us
electronically.

 

We are therefore unable to always respond to requests made in accordance
with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) or Environmental Information
Regulations (EIR), within the 20 working day time limit, at this time. 
Instead it is likely that a response to your request will be subject to
significant delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  However, we will respond
as soon as we can.  Responses to requests made under the Data Protection
Act are also very likely to face similar delays.

 

We apologise for any delay that may occur in responding to these types of
requests but are sure you will understand the reasons why.  We will keep
this position under constant review as the national position evolves.
General queries can still be sent to
[4][Bath and North East Somerset Council request email] and we will respond as soon as we
are able.

 

Further information on council service changes resulting from the impacts
of the Covid-19 pandemic can be found on our website at the following
