NOTICE OF REFUSAL
The information requested in respect of annual rates charged in £'s, we do not have a report to list the £'s charged and to gather this information would require manual intervention 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 part of the request.
