Thank you for your Freedom of Information request

Unfortunately I am unable to progress this request as it is too broad and
not specific enough for me to identify and locate the information.

To comply with the legislation, I need to clarify what information you are
requesting exactly

For example, where you say ' all safeguarding matters' and 'all matters
including the environment and public safety' . These are too broad . You
would need to request something like, 'all policies relating to child
welfare' or 'all policies relating to 'road safety'

Could you please provide me with a list of exactly you require so that I
can locate and provide the information

Thanks very much

Head of Customer Experience and DPO

Dear Kevin Conway,
When i ask for all safeguarding system, i mean all implemented procedures in event of any issue that would be said to be a danger to life for example Floods, Water contamination, Cyber crime, War, Famine, Pandemics, Terror attacks, Catastrophic infustructure failure and societal collaspe. What if the council found itself without access to funds, materials, adequate personell in positions of importance to the people it works for in the borough, if communication links with County council and or Goverment. Id like a list of issues like this with actions to be taken in event of these issues. Can i request Caroline from the housing department deal with my case and i suggest if she isnt currently at work within the council you should reinstate her and allow her to take control and sort this situation out, she would team up experienced staff with new staff and work together. Thats not a request either, dont make me force your hand.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne K Dargie (D.A MA.N)
