Y and Highland Council: SIC 17 Dec 2009

Mr Y asked Highland Council (the Council) for information about meetings between Councillors and Council officials and representatives of Tesco, in relation to a particular planning application. The Council provided answers to most of Mr Y’s questions, but did not address one of his requests to his satisfaction. Following a review, the Council advised Mr Y that he had been provided with all information which was held by the Council and which fell within the scope of his request. Mr Y remained dissatisfied and applied to the Commissioner for a decision.
After investigation, the Commissioner accepted that the Council did not hold any more information covered by the terms of Mr Y’s request, and that it had complied with the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) and the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (the EIRs) in responding to Mr Y’s request.
