Edenbridge Town Council (Decision Notice): ICO 28 Nov 2011

The complainant has requested information about bills for maintenance of a local sewage plant [redacted]. The council responded, stating that it was not possible for it to disclose detailed information on payments received [redacted] or discuss financial arrangements made with other parties. The Commissioner’s decision is that Edenbridge Town Council has not provided the complainant with a valid refusal of his request. It has therefore failed to correctly deal with the complainant’s request for information, and has breached regulations 11 and 14 of the EIR. He finds that, on the balance of probabilities, the requested information is not held by the public authority. The Commissioner does not require the public authority to take any steps.
Section of Act/EIR and Finding: EIR 11 – Complaint Upheld, EIR 14 – Complaint Upheld, EIR 14 – Complaint Upheld
