Dear Mr Hamilton,

 

Thank you for your email which you have sent to the County Council FOI
Team.

 

However, your request refers throughout to NBC (Northampton Borough
Council) and I wanted to check that this should in fact read NCC
(Northamptonshire County Council).

 

Your request will be suspended in the meantime and so I look forward to
hearing from you.

 

Many thanks and kind regards
