Dear Alex

Thank you for your Freedom of Information requests, which were received by
both South Oxfordshire District Council and Vale of White Horse District

are entitled to be informed in writing whether the council holds the
information specified in your request and, if that is the case, to have
that information communicated to you unless any of the statutory
exemptions apply. I have considered your request and can confirm we do
hold some of the information asked and I do not believe any of the
statutory exemptions apply to your request. Please find below the
information you requested (where available):

I would like to make an FOI request for the following pieces of
information:

Please treat this as the councils’ formal response under the 2000 Act.  If
you are not satisfied with the decision I have made in response to your
request, you may make a complaint under the council's complaints
procedure.  If you remain dissatisfied after following that procedure, you
have the right under Section 50 of the 2000 Act to complain to the
