Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')
As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.
I was wanting to know of any reported crime or anti social behaviour in the area of Ark Royal Close in Blyth
As the information you have requested is accessible by other means I have not provided you with a copy of the information and will rely on Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. You should therefore consider this a refusal for your request.
I have provided an explanation to this exemption below.
Section 21 (1) - Information accessible by other means
Information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant is exempt information.
Such figures are in the public domain and are therefore already freely available. Please refer to the police.uk website where this information can be established via simple research. The site allows you to input the ‘area’ and the time period/s you are interested in.
In order to assist I have provided the link below for you.
