Specific information request information
NNDR (National Non Domestic Rates) Freedom of information requests
Our business liability data is updated every three months and is available online.
Requests for personal information e.g. name of ratepayer, will not be responded to and will be redacted as they are exempted under section 40 of the Data Protection Act.
Request for information about empty properties will not be responded to as they are exempted under Section 31 on the Data Protection Act.
Properties that are vacant are vulnerable to crime and break ins.
Empty properties also would allow an intruder to remain in the property without being disturbed, as well use of the property for illegal or anti-social activities and so increases the risk of crime in or around empty.
Request for information about credits on accounts will not be responded to as they are exempted under Section 31 on the Data Protection Act.
Properties that hold a credit on their account are open to fraudulent claims for this refund.
Therefore to reduce the possibility of fraud, details are not passed out of credits.
