Inspection of leased property: failure to respond within statutory timescales – On 19 March 2015, Mr Harte asked Aberdeen City Council (the Council) for information about inspection of leased property and dealing with landlords. This decision finds that the Council failed to respond to the request within the timescale allowed by the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA). The decision also finds that the Council failed to comply with Mr Harte’s requirement for review within the timescale set down by FOISA.
The Commissioner has ordered the Council to comply with the requirement for review.
