In terms of the Freedom of Information Act of 2000, and subject to section 40(2) on personal data, could you please provide me with a complete and up-to-date list of all business (non-residential) property rates data for your local authority, and including the following fields:
- Billing Authority Reference Code (linking the property to the VOA database reference) - Firm's Trading Name (i.e. property occupant) - Full Property Address (Number, Street, Postal Code, Town) - Occupied / Vacant - Date of Occupation / Vacancy - Actual annual rates charged (in Pounds)
If you are able, please provide the Exemptions and / or Reliefs that a particular property may be receiving.
Please see attached spreadsheets
NOTICE OF REFUSALThe information requested to include the rates charged in pounds would require us to manually check each customer and would far exceed the time limit set out by the Information Commissioner therefore under S12 of the Freedom of information Act 2000 provides an exemption from the obligation to comply with a request for information if the estimated costs of complying with that request would exceed the prescribed appropriate limit.
We estimate that the costs of complying with your request would exceed the appropriate limit by a significant amount.
For this reason we feel unable to comply with this request
