    Something like this?


    "Dear Nottingham City Council,

    In terms of the Freedom of Information Act of 2000, and subject to section 40(2) on personal data, could you please provide me with a complete and up-to-date list of all business (non-residential) property rates data for your local authority, and including the following fields:

    - Billing Authority Property Reference Code (linking the property to the VOA database reference)
    - Firm's Trading Name (i.e. property occupant)
    - Full Property Address (Number, Street, Postal Code, Town)
    - Occupied / Vacant
    - Date of Occupation / Vacancy
    - Actual annual rates charged (in Pounds)

    If you are unable to provide an absolute “Occupation / Vacancy” status, please provide the Exemptions and / or Reliefs that a particular property may be receiving.

    Please provide these data as machine-readable as either a CSV or Microsoft Excel file, capable of re-use, and under terms of the Open Government Licence (meaning reuse for any and all purposes, including commercial).

    I'm sure you get many requests for business rates and responding and managing these FOIs must be costly for you. Could I request that - as 71% of local authorities now do - you update and release this dataset via a dedicated page on your local authority website or on an open data service. I can recommend approaches for you to consider, and you should find that this reduces the time and cost of this request process.

    Yours faithfully,

    Ellaro9"

    all business (non-residential) property rates data for your local authority,
    You don't want all that!  You want it for one parcel of land, surely?
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT (except N.Ireland).

    Thanks for that, I've fired off a few emails to the council, Lidl customer services, Lidl CEO and the area land manager for Lidl, also the ICO, not to mention VCS themselves with a SAR request seeing as they haven't replied to the one I sent them 2 years ago. KeithP I just sent the council another one quoting what you gave me so will see what I get back.
    I hope you complained to the ICO about that omission.

    Lidl replied saying they neither own nor manage the car park, still waiting for council

    If you haven't done so already, why not ask Lidl who does own or manage the car park?

    Ive been emailing the univercity today, they got quite shirty but have catagorically denied owning the land, then the council have replied to my FIO saying its a borough council and not them that covers the relevant land, even though gov.uk clearly states it is them, Ive put it in a letter and will post it later, feel like Im going around in circles with this atm. Oh and yes I asked Lidl if they know who owns/manages the car park

    The place where you were parked is part of Midland Way Retail Park and this is stated at the top of a notice at the entrance and another one adjacent to where you were parked.

    As far as I can find, this area is the Radford & Park Ward of Nottingham City Council.
