The complainant requested information from the London Borough of Croydon (‘LBC’) relating to planning applications. The Commissioner’s decision is that LBC has failed to carry out a reconsideration (internal review) of a response it provided under the EIR within 40 working days. It has therefore breached regulation 11 of the EIR. The Commissioner requires LBC to respond to the complainant’s response in accordance with the FOIA. LBC must take these steps within 35 calendar days of the date of this decision notice.
