Good Afternoon

 

The information you requested is not held by Woking Borough Council. The
information is held by the person who is the Woking Electoral Registration
Officer.  He exercises statutory duties under electoral legislation,
carries out separate functions to those carried out by the Council, and is
not acting as an officer of the council when undertaking those role. 
Electoral Registration Officers are not included on the list of public
bodies and local authorities which are subject to the provisions of the
Freedom of Information Act. Notwithstanding that there is no statutory
obligation to provide this information to you, we will provide replies to
your queries where possible on a voluntary basis.

No further requests were made by registered third parties in 2016 or 2017.

 

I hope that you are satisfied with the way in which your request for
information has been dealt with. If not, the Council has decided that any
complaint regarding requests for information that cannot be dealt with
satisfactorily on an informal basis should be dealt with in accordance
with its established complaints procedure. Details of our complaints
procedure may be found at:
[1]http://www.woking.gov.uk/council/about/c... .
Alternatively, I can forward you a paper copy of a leaflet giving details.
I am also happy to discuss any queries that you may have regarding how we
have dealt with your request for information. In addition, you may apply
to the Information Commissioner for a decision whether your request for
information has been dealt with in accordance with the requirements of the
Act (although I understand that the Information Commissioner may decline
to become involved if you have not first exhausted the Council's
complaints procedure). The Information Commissioner may be contacted at
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF; tel. 01625
