SIC Planning application: failure to respond within statutory timescales – On 3 March 2014, Mrs W asked East Dunbartonshire Council (the Council) for information about a planning application. 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) and the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (the EIRs). The decision also finds that the Council failed to comply with Mrs W’s requirement for review within the timescale set down by FOISA and the EIRs.
The Commissioner has ordered the Council to comply with the requirement for review.
