Cornwall Council (Decision Notice): ICO 22 Apr 2014

ICO The complainant has requested a list of non-licensable houses in multiple occupancy (HMOs) held by Cornwall Council.

The Commissioner has concluded that none of the addresses are exempt from disclosure on the basis of sections 40(2) and 41(1) and although some of the information is exempt from disclosure on the basis of section 30(2)(a)(iii) the public interest favours disclosure of this information. The Commissioner requires the public authority provide the complainant with a copy of the information he requested (ie ‘the idox report- previously disclosed to the Commissioner).
