The complainant has requested information from the London Borough of Southwark (‘the Council’), in relation to copies of court order charge forms and redacted copies of any court orders obtained. The Council relied on section 21 of FOIA to withhold the requested information as it was already reasonably accessible to the requestor. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Council is entitled to rely on the exemption at section 21 of FOIA (information accessible by other means) to withhold the information. The Commissioner does not require the public authority to take any further steps.
