Data Protection Act - Freedom of Information Act

Legal Authority

The method of calculating charges within this report is in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (appropriate limits and fees) Regulations 2004. Disbursements are set locally and should be reasonable and not designed to generate a surplus.  The £10 for Data Protection Act subject access requests is a maximum and is discretionary but is helpful in limiting frivolous requests.

Charges

When estimating the cost of complying with a written request for Information, the Council will take into account the staff time involved in the following activities:

  • Determining whether the information is held.
  • Locating the information or a document that may contain the information.
  • Retrieving and extracting the information, or a document that may contain the Information.

The cost of the above activities will be calculated by applying an hourly rate of £25 per person.  When calculating the costs to process requests, the Council cannot take account of the time taken to consider whether information is exempt under the Act or the time involved in redacting any information which is not to be disclosed.

Where the cost to process a request is below £450

Where the cost of complying with a written request for information is estimated to be below £450, there will be no charge unless the disbursement costs (printing copying and postage) exceed £10.  Where disbursement costs exceed £10, the applicant will be issued with a fees notice and must pay the costs within a period of three months before the Council can comply with the request.

Where the cost to process a FOI request exceeds £450

The Council is not obliged to respond to a written request for information, where it estimates that the cost of complying with the request would be in excess of £450 (which equates to 18 hours of work at £25 per hour).  If the cost exceeds £450, the Council will charge for all the hours at a rate of £25 per hour or decline the request - alternatively, the Council will assist the requester in refining the request to within 18 hours to ensure no charge (other than possible disbursements) will be incurred.

Campaign requests

If the Council receives two or more related requests within a period of 60 consecutive working days, from a person or different persons who appear to be acting in concert or in pursuance of a campaign, the costs of complying with the individual requests will be aggregated.

Priced publications

These will be charged at cover price plus postage where relevant.

Disbursements

The Council advises members of the public to use the copy services for which they pay direct at the relevant rate

Postage costs: Default postage will be by 2nd class Royal Mail.

Prices for alternative postage methods will be at the prevailing rates.

Other Charges

CD Rom/DVD £1 per Disc

Data Protection Act 1998

Under the Data Protection Act 1998, the Council will charge an individual the sum of £10 for requesting personal information held by the Council about the individual.  These requests for information are referred to as subject access requests.  The Council will not process the subject access request until the £10 fee has been received.

Discounts

None, although no charge for disbursements will be made where the aggregate cost is below £10.

Court Fees

Council Tax is a charge to owners and occupiers of domestic dwellings and Business Rates, is a charge on the occupation of a nondomestic property.  The Revenue Service bills those liable of the charges and collects the monies due. Sometimes, despite these reminders, the bill is not paid.  In these cases the Revenues Service will issue a Summons and apply to the Magistrate's Court for a Liability Order.  The costs of issuing the Summons is charged to the taxpayer.

Court Fees are set here
