Dear Ms Marlow

 

Request for Information

 

I refer again to your email dated 26 August 2022 seeking information in
relation to derelict or abandoned buildings.

 

Having investigated, I can advise that the Council does not hold a list or
register of derelict or abandoned buildings and in terms of Section 17 of
the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, I must advise you of
this.  By way of explanation there is no statutory requirement to do so.

 

However, to be of assistance please note that the Council undertakes a
Survey of Vacant and Derelict Land but this is primarily a survey of land
to identify sites that meet the prescribed definitions of Vacant and
Derelict Land as set out by Scottish Government Guidance. It should be
noted that some Land which is derelict  (land damaged by previous
development and which requires rehabilitation to bring it back into a
productive use) may have derelict buildings or remains of buildings on
site but these are not the primary focus of the survey. If you wish to
receive a copy of this survey please contact the Planning Service at the
undernoted email:-

 

[1][email address]

 

I can advise that North Lanarkshire Council, having regard to the
provisions of Section 21 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002, has established a procedure whereby any person who has requested
information and is in any way dissatisfied with the decision on that
request, can within forty working days require a review of that decision
by writing to the Head of Legal and Democratic Solutions, Civic Centre,
Windmillhill Street, Motherwell ML1 1AB.  Accordingly, if you are
dissatisfied with this decision and seek such review please write to the
Head of Legal and Democratic Solutions.

 

I would advise, also, that in terms of Section 47 of the Act a person who
is dissatisfied with a notice given by the local authority under Section
21 of the Act - ie. a notice following a review of a decision by a local
authority, or by the failure of a local authority to give such a notice -
may make application to the Scottish Information Commissioner for a
decision as to whether, in any respect specified in that application, the
request for information to which the requirement relates has been dealt
with in accordance with the Act.  Such an application must be made within
six months of the review decision and be in writing or in another form
which, by reason of it having some permanency is capable of being used for
subsequent reference. The application must state the name of the
applicant, and provide an address for correspondence. The application must
also specify the request for information to which the requirement for
review relates, the matter which gave rise to the applicant’s
dissatisfaction with the original decision of the local authority and the
matter which gives rise to the applicant’s dissatisfaction with the
decision on review by the local authority or the failure of the local
authority to issue such a decision.  The Scottish Information Commissioner
can be contacted as follows:-

email: [2][email address]

 

Appeals to the Scottish Information Commissioner can also be made online
via the following link: -

I hope this information is sufficient for your purpose.  If, however, you
require further information – or I can assist in any other way – please
let me know.

 

Yours sincerely

Jacqueline Keachie
