Dear South Gloucestershire Council,

In addition to this, annual figures for the number of current employees / ex-employees (including teaching staff) who have agreed, following the matter being raised and made conditional as part of a compromise agreement drawn up by the body acting as the Council's legal team, to sign and forgo their right to approach the council in the future with Freedom of Information and/or DPA Subject Access requests under the relevant Acts.

Dear Donna Marks,
Thanks very much for your detailed response and for the time you have devoted to this request.
I am engaged in wide-ranging research in this area and wish to obtain figures for ALL English Councils which are as accurate as possible. The purpose of this is to observe trends and movements, both regionally and nationally.
In light of this, please could you exclude COT3 agreements from the quoted figures and re-advise? It's my intention to concentrate on annual figures for compromise agreements only.
Many thanks in advance,
