The complainant has requested details of schools included in a pilot scheme relating to selling surplus school land for housing. The Department for Education (DfE) refused the request under the exceptions at regulation 12(4)(d) and 12(5)(e) of the EIR. The Commissioner’s decision is that the DfE has correctly applied the regulation 12(4)(d) exception and the balance of the public interest lies in maintaining the exception. She requires no steps to be taken by the DfE.
