Nottingham costs FOI

A Freedom of Information (FOI) request was sent to Nottingham council in March this year requesting information a break down of average costs associated against the £600 licensing fee.

In the response the authority estimated that an average cost of carrying out a rental a house inspection was £77.17.

There was no further breakdown of costs for enforcement and administration / bureaucracy.

Does anyone have any similar costs from FOI requests or would like to volunteer to make a further FOI request?

I’m looking for discrepancies to discredit various schemes costings.

Many thanks

I did the Nottingham FOI early on.
It was £77, I have the hard copy they sent me.

I think I may have put it on my Selective Licensing video, not sure.

Hello Mick - I'm really glad I don't have to deal with those idiots! Do you have the FOI in a file you could send me please? My email address is
I'll then be able to challenge the £282 figure they gave me.

Let me know via the email if you want the odd WhatsApp sending when I have info. Most of it now bitching & moaning about the horrendous Victorian website which is torturous if u have more than one house to amend.
