under FOI please give me an excel (NOT as a pdf) list of all FOI requests you have had since it became law. for each FOI request, please list:

date of request
date of reply
reference number/ID
status [whether information was fully released, partially released or withheld]

please email your reply back to the above email address. if you have any questions about this please email me

Yours faithfully,

Each request on the list should include the subject/title of the request please

Coulston, Jackie, Bromley Borough Council

Thank you for your request for information which I received on 2 August. Your request is now receiving attention and you should hear from the council within 20 working days of receipt.

Sometimes a fee is payable if it is estimated that a request will take a council officer more than 18 hours to locate and copy the information and to send it out. If that is the case, I will let you know and a fees notice will be sent to you. You will then have to pay before we can proceed to deal with your request.

Best wishes

Dear Mr Farnet

Further to your email, I require more time to complete this request. This is due to redacting as necessary the list of requests to ensure personal information is not divulged.

I hope to get the information to you within the next 14 days.

Best wishes

Dear Mr Farnet

Please find attached Excel spreadsheets setting out the information you require.

You will see that I am unable to provide you with the date of the Council's reply to the requests. This is because the database used for recording requests does not have the ability to run this type of report. It would have to be done manually and would exceed the appropriate limit of £450 as set out in FOI Regulations. This represents the estimated cost of one person spending 2½ working days trawling through the database and manually typing the date of reply into the relevant spreadsheet.

You will also note that I am unable to indicate the exemption applied where a request has been refused or where a request has been answered fully or partially but we will be reviewing this for the future.

I hope you find the information provided useful.

Many thanks for your enquiry.

Yours sincerely
