Dear AJ
 
INFORMATION REQUEST ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
 
Thank you for your request for information received on 3rd May 2023
 
Your request will be considered in accordance with the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FOIA) or the Environmental Information Regulations
2004 (EIR) if it relates to environmental information as defined in Part
1(2)(1) of the EIR. Subject to the points made below, you will receive the
information requested as promptly as possible within the statutory
timescale of 20 working days.
 
If we need to obtain clarification from you to help us understand what
information you require, we will contact you as soon as possible. If this
is the case, the 20 working day time limit will not begin until the
necessary clarification has been received.
 
There are a number of lawful reasons why we may not be able to release
certain information. These reasons are referred to as 'exemptions' in the
FOIA or 'exceptions' in the EIR.  The Council will consider whether any of
these apply and, where required, will carry out a Public Interest Test to
decide whether information should be disclosed. If any information is to
be withheld, we will explain which exemption or exception applies. We may
be entitled to extend the deadline in certain cases, for FOIA this would
be to consider the Public Interest Test and for EIR where the request is
particularly complex or voluminous. In both cases we will be permitted to
extend deadline by a further 20 working days and will inform you if this
is the case.
 
The Council’s standard approach is to provide the information in the form
in which we hold it.  If you require an alternative format, for example,
an audio file, large print or information in a different language, please
let us know and we will provide it if reasonably practicable to do so.
 
There may be a fee payable for providing the information, for example, if
the cost of complying exceeds the appropriate limit set out in Section 12
of the FOIA or for photocopying or postage.   If a fee is to be charged,
we will send you a Fees Notice. Any fee must be paid before the
information will be provided.  The time between the issue of the Fees
Notice and receipt of payment will be excluded from the calculation of the
20 working day time limit.
 
Any personal information you provide us with will only be used to enable
us to comply with your request.
 
If you have any queries or concerns, please contact the Information
Governance Team at Portsmouth City Council, Civic Offices, Guildhall
Square, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO1 2AL, telephone 023 9283 4385, e-mail
[1][email address].
