I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from Hasting Borough Council:
I would like to know how much public money the Hastings Borough Council has spent on Hastings Pier since it re-opened in October 2016.
Please provide the information in the form of a spreadsheet of expenses spent on Hastings Pier each quarter of the year from October 2016 to April 2018.
Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding, we have introduced a new Freedom of Information system and have experienced a few problems.We can advise that the only monies paid by the Council in respect of the Pier since April 2016 amount to £77,308.77 and this was paid on 1 May 2018 (following a request in 2017/18) in respect of a guarantee the Council gave in respect of a Community Builders loan from the Social Investment Business Foundation, which although outside of your requested dates may be relevant.Discretionary Rate relief of £1,833.40 (in addition to mandatory relief) was granted to the Hastings Pier Charity in 2017/18.
