Freedom of Information...Will be Along in a While

A quick glancette at the current list of FoI requests submitted to Nottingham City Council on the excellent 'What Do They Know' site (there's a feed of ongoing developments over there -->) shows a total of 34 requests for information via the site so far.

Currently 11 of those requests are listed as 'response overdue', nearly a third of the total.

That really is a bit shit isn't it?

Update; in a delightfully surreal twist someone's put in a Freedom of Information request about how quickly NCC are dealing with Freedom of Information requests (it wasn't me before you ask).

Next up - a Freedom of Information Request about how quickly NCC are dealing with Freedom of Information Requests about how quickly they are dealing with Freedom of Information Requests?

Is there no penalty for not complying with a request within the designated time?

And, if so, why has it not been applied to NCC yet?

There's no 'penalty' per se, all you can do is to escalate the issue through the review process.
