Dear Stratton St Margaret Parish Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Stratton St Margaret Parish Council's handling of my FOI request 'Staffing'.

Dear Stratton St Margaret Parish Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Stratton St Margaret Parish Council's handling of my FOI request 'staffing' because you were required by Law to reply by the 12th February. You have failed to do so and shown a casual disregard in answering the simple questions asked by an interest person who pays your tax.

I ask you again to provide the answers to this FOI, and to conduct an internal review. This matter will also be reported to the National Information Commissioner

How many members of staff does Stratton Parish have at each pay scale in 2009/2010/2011/2012/2013 and proposed in 2014.

What is the total salary expenditure at each pay scale in each of the above years.

What is the total pension and staff benefits expenditure at each pay scale in each of the above years.

How many members of staff have been made redundant at each pay scale, and what is the total amount of money spent on redundancy in each of the above years,

For the avoidance of doubt the years are financial years

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/s...

Yours faithfully,

Tracy Predeth, Stratton St Margaret Parish Council

Dear Mr Wright

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000 - Request for Information

 

I am writing in respect of your recent enquiry for information held by the
Authority under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.

 

Under the Act (Section 12(1)) the Authority has the right to refuse to
release the information where it is reasonably estimated that the cost of
complying with a request would exceed £450 (calculated on the basis of 18
hours @ £25 per hour). On this occasion we have estimated that the cost of
determining whether we hold the requested information and locating,
retrieving and extracting it would exceed £450. The Authority has
therefore decided to refuse your request, Numbers 193170, 193171, 193172,
193173 and 192832 refer.

 

We may, however, be able to assist you with your request if you can narrow
it down and be more specific about the information you are seeking, which
would reduce the search and would assist you with the request.

 

I can however inform you that the Council currently employs 14 Full Time
Staff and 50 Part Time Staff.

 

The Chairman of the Council, Cllr John Foley would be more than willing to
meet with you to discuss and explain the work of the Parish Council should
you so wish.  Please let me know if you would like me to arrange a
meeting.

 

If you are unhappy with the way the authority has handled your request,
you may ask for an internal review. Please contact the Locum Clerk at
Stratton St Margaret Parish Council who will arrange an internal review of
your case.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow SK9 5AF.

 

If you need to discuss this matter further please do not hesitate to
contact me on the number below.

 

Regards

 

Tracy Predeth BA (Hons) MPA FILCM

If it really costs over £450 to produce the information requested, the competence of this authority to manage staffing data properly must be questioned.
