Valuation Office Agency (Local Government (Other)): ICO 3 Mar 2015

The complainant has requested information about ‘key properties’ that the Valuation Office Agency used to define the council tax banding of an area of Swanage approximately twenty five years ago. The Valuation Office Agency refuses to release the requested information, which it says is exempt under section 44(1)(a) of the FOIA (prohibitions on disclosure). The Commissioner’s decision is that Valuation Office Agency has correctly applied this exemption and he does not require it to take any further steps.
FOI 44: Not upheld
