Dear Mr Proctor

 

Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004

Request for Review Ref Q6.1.1/R77.17

 

I have asked the information request team
([Fife Council request email]) to log the undernoted as a new request
and they should respond to you directly: -

 

currently included are "Selected representative comments on the bin
trials. "

Can you please send over all responses, unedited - positive and negative.

 

However, in your email of 17 August 2017 @14.18 you state the report seems
incomplete to you which has triggered the current review. Please confirm
if you would like me to carry out an internal review into whether or not
the report was complete. This would be separate from the new request
above.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Fife Council,
Hi - no need for an internal review, the report does what it sets out to do. The comments included aren't the full set and have been edited for the purposes of summarisation I assume. I'd just like a copy of all the comments that were submitted to the questionnaire if that's possible, not just those selected in the report.

Yours faithfully,

Mark Proctor

Dear Gemma Harrison,

Thanks for this - although I had a look through and a lot of the comments seem to be truncated - e.g. " I have a baby granddaughter who visits and her ".
Is it possible some of the data wasn't copied correctly?
Appreciate you checking if possible.
Thanks,
Yours sincerely,

Mark Proctor

I’ve looked into the matter and realised that when I converted the
original spreadsheet to PDF it has cut off some of the longer comments. I
am sorry I did not notice this at the time.

Please now find attached the original spreadsheet (not PDF.) Apologies
again.
