Vexatious and Repeated Requests

WHBC will not comply with vexatious requests where there is a strong likelihood that such requests are being made to intentionally cause harassment, divert resources and/or disrupt the proper workings of the Council.

The Council will not comply with a request where it has received an identical or similar request from the same individual unless a reasonable interval has elapsed between compliance with the original request and the current request. A written notice stating when a request is deemed vexatious or a repeat will be sent to the applicant.
