Our response

We consider that to comply with the remaining request it would exceed the
cost/time limit specified by s12 FOIA.
Section 12 (cost of compliance exceeds the appropriate limit)
12. — (1) Section 1(1) does not oblige a public authority to comply with a
request for information if the authority estimates that the cost of
complying with the request would exceed the appropriate limit.
In this instance, we have decided that the process of determining whether
the information is held will exceed the Appropriate Limit as provided by
The Freedom of Information (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004.

The Appropriate Limit applies to costs/time the Council reasonably expects
to use in carrying out the following activities to comply with your
request:

• Determine whether the information is held
• Locating the information or documents containing the information
• Retrieving such information or documents
• Extracting the information from the document

The Appropriate Limit is currently set at £450, which is the equivalent to
18 hours of work at £25 per hour. The process of retrieving and collecting
the data is therefore likely to exceed the Appropriate Limit.

In accordance with Section 17 FOIA this letter represents a Refusal Notice
for this request.
Should you wish to redefine or shorten your request then please resubmit
another request to us and we will consider if we can respond.
