* The Freedom of Information (Fees and Appropriate Limit) Regulations 2004 specifies an “appropriate limit” for the amount of time the council needs to spend undertaking that search. If the council estimates that the time taken to locate, retrieve and extract the information requested will exceed the appropriate limit, then under Section 12 of the Act, it is not obliged to comply with that request.

The appropriate limit currently specified by the Regulations for local authorities is £450. This represents the estimated cost of one person spending two and a half working days in locating, retrieving and extracting the information from where it is stored. We estimate that the cumulative time it would take officers to retrieve the complete records you are seeking would exceed the appropriate limit. Therefore, we are unable to disclose the information you are seeking.

Therefore in order to collate this information, it is estimated that our officers would exceed the 18-hour ‘appropriate limit’, as a data cleanse and manual trawl of records would be required to complete this request and as stated under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act (2000), we are unable to disclose the information you are seeking.

** Section 22 states:

(1) Information is exempt information if—
(a) the information is held by the public authority with a view to its publication, by the authority or any other person, at some future date (whether determined or not),
(b) the information was already held with a view to such publication at the time when the request for information was made, and
(c) it is reasonable in all the circumstances that the information should be withheld from disclosure until the date referred to in paragraph (a).
(2) The duty to confirm or deny does not arise if, or to the extent that, compliance with section 1(1)(a) would involve the disclosure of any information (whether or not already recorded) which falls within subsection (1).

This acts as an exemption notice. We have applied this exemption because the requested information is due to be published at a later date. An updated version of the document is yet to be completed. We have considered the balancing of the public interests and confirm that this information cannot be released until its future publication due to the current information needing updating to ensure its accuracy. This information is scheduled to be updated in September 2016.
