Dear Ms Scott

 

I apologise for the time taken to reply to your FOI.

 

The Council does hold the information that you have requested, however, it
would take considerably over 18 hours to find the answers to your
questions as

the information is not held centrally or in any structured way.  Rather it
will be an adhoc collection of e-mail discussions  held in any number of
locations, individual email accounts etc. As such I am of the view that
conducting an extensive search would take in excess of the appropriate
limits. The Fees Regulations made under the Freedom of Information Act say
that we do not have to incur costs over £450 in responding to a request;
the regulations instruct us to assume that the hourly cost of providing
information will be £25, and this therefore equates to an 18 hour cap on
the time we will spend to identify, search for, retrieve, and extract
information.

 

However under section 16 (Advice and Assistance) of the Act i estimate
that by narrowing the scope of your request and only conducting a search
of the main areas in which we believe the information is held i.e.
 Parking Services, I have been able to provide the attached information
within the appropriate limits. I hope this provides you with sufficient
information to satisfy your enquiry.

 

Please contact me if you have any queries regarding my response.

 

regards
