Aldeburgh Town Council
For the attention of the Town Clerk
Please accept this letter as an open government request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
Would you please provide information on the following:
1. Please provide any information you hold on why Cllr Sally Jones, Chair of the Property and Finance Committee, contacted commercial entities issuing financial quotations and requested they redirect written mail containing these quotations originally destined for Aldeburgh Town Council offices to her home address. The redirection duly occurred and the mail in question contained sensitive financial information relating to premises known as the Tractor Shed Aldeburgh (tenant-Mint Fitness (Aldeburgh) Ltd).
2. On how many other occasions has Cllr Jones, or any other member of the Town Council redirected mail, or otherwise withheld or concealed sensitive information from town councillors and the public immediately prior to a decision being taken?
3. Why did the Town Clerk, having been made aware of this, withhold details of Cllr Jones’ actions from other town councillors and the public?
If the release of any of this information is prohibited on the grounds of breach of confidence, would you please supply me with a copy of the applicable confidentiality agreement?
For your information my family are homeowners in Aldeburgh and we are part time residents in the town.
Thank you for taking the time to deal with this request and I look forward to hearing from you.
