1/ Copies of Event Notice including application date
2/ Copies of Risk Assessment relating to the event
3/ Copies or confirm liability insurance has been checked and verified by paid receipt.
4/ Copies of Road closure under Ton & Police Act 1847 Section 21 - Confirm application date please. Confirm any cost applied to this Road Closure.

Section 8(1)(b) also requires the requester to provide a valid

This can be any address where the requester may be contacted
(including postal or email addresses) and does not have to be
their normal residential or business address. I have provided my name and the correspondence address as required by law.

I appear to have omitted the 'add' in my previous request - sorry. This should now clear things up - Thank You

Dear P. A. Gadd,

Thank you for your second Freedom of Information request dated 30 October 2019 which has been added to reference FOI 10119.

"Could you please provide copies of the following regarding the Boxing Day 26 Dec2019 Meeting Which starts in High St organised by the Southdown Hunt please.
1/ Copies of Event Notice including application date 2/ Copies of Risk Assessment relating to the event 3/ Copies or confirm liability insurance has been checked and verified by paid receipt.
4/ Copies of Road closure under Ton & Police Act 1847 Section 21 - Confirm application date please. Confirm any cost applied to this Road Closure."

As stated in my previous email the Council has concerns over the receipt of anonymous and, possibly, pseudonymous requests. Therefore I would appreciate it if you could provide, electronically or otherwise, some proof of your identity.

The usual forms of proof such as passport, drivers licence or a utility bill are acceptable but other formats will be considered as long as they demonstrate the genuine identity of the requestor. These can be sent to [email address]

A request for information must contain the ‘real name’ and address of the requestor:

Freedom of Information Act 2000 Section 8(1)(b):

In this Act any reference to a “request for information” is a reference to such a request which—

“…states the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence”

I attached the ICO guidance (Identity or motives of the applicant) in my previous email.

Alternatively, you are entitled to appeal to the Information Governance Appeals Officer -

In the meantime your request has been put on hold until I receive your reply. If I do not hear from you within 30 working days of the date of your original email I will assume that you no longer wish to proceed with your information request, and will take no further action.

Regards,
