The Council does not have a statutory obligation to provide electoral information under the Act.  The registration of electors is governed by the Representation of the People Act 1983 (as amended). 

Under Section 8 of that Act, the Council must appoint an officer of the Council to be the Registration Officer for any constituency coterminous with or situated in the Council’s area.  For North Devon that role is undertaken by the Council’s Chief Executive.  The role and responsibility of the Electoral Registration Officer is separate from the role of Chief Executive and it is not carried out on behalf of the Council. 

However, in this instance the information that was requested was provided to the applicant, where held
