Dear Breckland District Council,

I am writing to you in relation to my FOI request 'Thetford Place Brand Project'. Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

While I am grateful for the information you provided and it fulfils my request, your response took significantly longer the statutory time-limit of 20 working days. You did not provide any explanation or apology for this delay. I must therefore ask that you conduct an internal review of your handling of my request, with the aim of providing an explanation as to why you failed to respond in time, and details of the steps you are taking to ensure you meet your legal obligations under FOI in future.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Robert Whittaker
