The complainant has requested from Newcastle City Council information in relation to penalty charge notices (PCNs) issued for vehicles in John Dobson Street. The Council provided the complainant with some information. For the remainder the Council applied section 12(1) of the FOIA on the basis that it had estimated that responding to the request would exceed the appropriate cost limit. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Council was correct to apply section 12(1) of the FOIA and that it was not therefore obliged to comply with the remainder of the request. The Commissioner also considers that the Council provided the complainant with appropriate advice and assistance in accordance with its obligations under section 16 FOIA. The Commissioner requires no steps to be taken.
