A list of communications with Lidl

We're waiting for Timothy Watson to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

I write to ask for a list of all correspondence with dates that WBC have had with Lidl or their agents in regard to the sale of land at Arrowe Park Road, Upton and the development of a supermarket, to include a description of the nature of that correspondence (email, letter, phonecall) and a brief description of the reason and content of the correspondence.

Yours faithfully,

Tim Watson

Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

It appears you have failed to respond promptly to my FOI request and I see this as a disturbing repetitive behaviour.

You should have responded by 4th February and yet you have not communicated with me in any way.

Please address my request urgently.

Yours faithfully,

Timothy Watson

Hi Tim,

As you probably already know, Wirral Council's performance in responding to information requests has been way down since well March 2020.

Sadly, for many information requests, the only way to get a response is to complain to ICO unfortunately if the relevant time limits have expired (20 days for the initial response, the time limit for internal review/reconsideration is different depending on the type of request).

Weirdly Wirral Council have plenty of legal resource to appeal ICO decision notices to the First-tier Tribunal.

I have a related request here - to do with responses to the recent public consultation - https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/o... .

All the best,

John

Dear Mr Timothy Watson

 

Thank you for your recent enquiry that has been processed in accordance
with the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 as it meets the
definition of ‘environmental information’ as defined within Regulation
2(1)(f).  Please accept our apologies for the slight delay in response. 
Your request is set out as below:

 

“I write to ask for a list of all correspondence with dates that WBC have
had with Lidl or their agents in regard to the sale of land at Arrowe Park
Road, Upton and the development of a supermarket, to include a description
of the nature of that correspondence (email, letter, phonecall) and a
brief description of the reason and content of the correspondence.”

 

 

Wirral Council considers that the information requested,  a list of
communications  in regard to the sale of land at Arrowe Park Road, Upton
and the development of a supermarket would be sensitive material

and therefore cannot be released as it is commercially sensitive
information and may be used to unfair advantage during any future
procurement process.  We therefore consider referring to Regulation
12(5)(e) Commercial confidentiality
[1]https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...

 

Regulation 12 (5)(e) is a qualified exemption, we have applied the public
interest test and are therefore are satisfied that the public interest in
maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing and
rely on EIR 12(5)(e) to withhold this information

The public interest argument for disclosure is that it allows a greater
degree of scrutiny over how public money is spent, while contributing to
transparency over how decisions have been reached. It is important that
public authorities allow their decisions to be scrutinised by the public
to ensure that funds are managed appropriately.

 

The public interest factors to withhold the information relate to the
prejudicial impact that the disclosure would have on the commercial
interests of any person (including the public authority itself). It would
not, for example, be in the public interest to disclose information about
a particular commercial body if that information was not common knowledge
and would be likely to be used by competitors in a particular market to
gain a competitive advantage

 

 

You have the right to make representations under Regulation 11 of the 2004
EIRs in respect of the refusal to supply information requested, which
should be sent to [2][Wirral Borough Council request email]  .  If you are
dissatisfied with that response to your request, you also you have the
right to complain to the Information Commissioner, but would normally be
expected to make representations to the Council first, before complaining
to the Commissioner at [3]https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/  

 

 

 

Yours sincerely
