Flooding on the Earnock Burn – On 17 February 2012, Zurich Insurance plc (Zurich) asked South Lanarkshire Council (the Council) for a wide range of information regarding flooding on the Earnock Burn. The Council informed Zurich that its request was manifestly unreasonable and a response would not be provided.
Following an investigation, the Commissioner found that the Council was entitled to withhold the information under regulation 10(4)(b) of the EIRs. She did not require the Council to take any action.
