BGCBC - FOI Requests, Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council

Dear Gwen Jones,

 

In response to your Freedom of Information request please see our response
below:

 

Unfortunately, we do not record the average time and estimate the cost of
retrieving this information would exceed the “appropriate limit” as stated
in the Freedom of Information (Fees and Appropriate Limit) Regulations
2004, as it would require a manual trawl through every record and
calculating the sums .The “appropriate limit” represents the estimated
cost of one person spending 18 hours in determining whether the Council
holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the
information.

 

We are therefore applying an exemption under Section 12 of the Freedom of
Information Act (2000), which provides an exemption from a public
authority’s obligation to comply with a request for information where the
cost of compliance is estimated to exceed the appropriate limit.

 

We are mindful of our duty to advise and assist you under Section 16 of
the FOI Act as to the type of information that could be provided within
the Section 12 limit. Please be advised that if you were to change your
request so it did not relate to averages and resubmit your request so that
it brings the cost within the appropriate limit, then we would happily
reconsider.

 

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact us.

 

Kind regards
