Guildford Borough Council (Local Government): ICO 29 Mar 2019

The complainant has requested any information from Guildford Borough Council (‘the Council’), exchanged between a group of named people, containing the words ‘livery’ and ‘meeting’ and dated between 1 March 2015 to 31 December 2015. The Commissioner’s decision is that the request was vexatious and therefore, the Council was entitled to rely on Section 14(1) of the FOIA to refuse it. However, as the Council did not respond to the complainant’s request within 20 working days, section 10 of the FOIA has been breached. The Commissioner does not require any further steps to be taken.
FOI 10: Complaint upheld FOI 14: Complaint not upheld
