Request refused in terms of section 17 of FOISA

 

The Council cannot give you some of this information because it does not
have it.  While the Council retains records of all applications subject to
the statutory requirements of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982,
prior to 2012 it does not hold records of numbers of licences current as
at a specific date.

Request for Review

 

The Council has a Review Panel to deal with complaints from people who are
not happy about the way that it has handled their request. Staff not
involved in the original decision will handle any review.

 

If you want to complain, you can ask the Review Panel to look at the way
that we have dealt with your request. It will consider whether we have
complied with the requirements of FOISA. Please note that if you wish to
complain, you must do so by 14 August 2015. You must explain why you are
not happy when requesting a review.

 

Please note that the Review Panel cannot look at any decisions taken by
the Council or actions of the Council or any of its employees or a service
provided by it that are not connected to the handling for request for
information.

 

You should send your request for a review to:

            Mr. W. Dunn
