Dear LWM Guy


Thank you for your FOI request.  These answers relate to the Esher and
Walton constituency.


The answers to your questions are below in blue.


The Council operates a presumption of openness in its access to
information.  It provides much information outside the provisions of the
Freedom of Information Act and it will continue to do on a “business as
usual” basis.  Persons do not need to engage the statutory provisions to
access all reasonable information about the Council and its services.


If, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with our response, you have the
right to ask for an internal review.  Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should be addressed to Head of Legal Services,
Elmbridge Borough Council, Civic Centre, High Street, Esher, Surrey KT10


Should you then remain dissatisfied at the outcome of that process, you
are entitled to appeal against the decision by contacting:

The Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. 

Telephone:  0303 123 1113 or 01625 545 745
