Dear Bury Metropolitan Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Bury Metropolitan Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Traffic Penalty Tribunal decisions'.

Under the FOI act you have a duty to assist the person making requests in how they may narrow the scope of their request. You haven't done this. You obviously don't want to give information out. Perhaps if Parking Services was more organised and information was more readily available their service would improve. How can I narrow the scope of the request?

You write "However, the non-archived Tribunal cases that are retained in Parking Services show
that:
There were 5 PCN's appealed for The Rock at the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.
There were 2 appeals dismissed
There were 2 appeals allowed
There is 1 case awaiting a decision."

I would like a copy of these, and I understand any personal information can be redacted. This will ensure there are no data protection issues.

My last request wasn't actually an internal review, so I am asking for one now if you can't provide the details I have requested.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/t...

Yours faithfully,

Nath
