This message has been hidden. This response has been hidden due to an apparently inappropriate release of personal information - in a document containing contact details of allotment secretaries. A major factor in our consideration was the document wasn't FOI release as such; just information the council provided to try and be helpful (possibly under S16 "Duty to provide advice and assistance"). The text of the response, without the document containing the personal information, has been copied into an annotation below. Please contact us if you have any questions. If you are the requester, then you may sign in to view the message.
