Response

I can provide you with the answers to your questions (1) and (2) as follows:-

1) 1360
2) 1067

With regard to the remaining questions, I would draw your attention to the planning register on the Council’s website where all the information is available but it will, of course, take time to ascertain this information. Currently the Uniform system used by my Council does not enable information to be retrieved by searching on Green Belt. To do so by my staff would be excessive, in terms of cost and time and as this would exceed the appropriate limit, as set out in Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act, my Council is therefore exempt from providing the majority of your requested information in this particular instance.
