Warwick District Council (Decision Notice): ICO 16 Dec 2010

The complainant made a request to Warwick District Council for all emails exchanged between two named employees in a specified period of 21 months. The Council refused the request on the grounds that it was vexatious and applied section 14(1) of the Act. The Commissioner, on balance, considers that the Council was entitled to refuse the request under section 14(1). However, the Commissioner also found that the Council breached section 17(5) of the Act because it failed to inform the complainant that it was relying upon section 14(1) within 20 working days of receiving the request.
Section of Act/EIR and Finding: FOI 14 – Complaint Not upheld, FOI 17 – Complaint Upheld
