Dear Danielle Gregory,

 

I refer to your recent request for information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.  I can confirm that the Council does hold this
information, as detailed below.

 

Please disclose the findings of any previously carried out structural
assessments on the seven 17-storey Taylor Woodrow Anglian tower blocks on
the Gilley Law estate. Namely: Australia Tower, Amble Tower, Amalfi Tower,
Altrincham Tower, Aldenham Tower, Aden Tower and Aberdeen Tower.
Particularly, any references to strengthening, fire compartmentation or
risk of disproportionate collapse.

Although the Council does hold this information, it would require a
significant manual exercise to be undertaken to extract the information
you have requested which would exceed the fees limit, therefore this
element of your request is refused under Section 12 (Appropriate Limit and
Fees) of the Freedom of Information Act.

 

I hope this is satisfactory.  If, however, you are dissatisfied with our
response to your request for information, you can ask for the decision to
be reviewed in reply to this letter, however any request for review must
be submitted within 40 days of the date of this freedom of information
response.  The review will be removed from the Directorate and coordinated
by the Council’s Information Governance Officer.   A request for review
should be directed, by email to [1][Sunderland City Council request email],
by post or by hand addressed to; Information Governance Officer,
Governance Services, Civic Centre, PO Box 100, Sunderland SR2 7DN.

 

You are of course entitled to apply to the Information Commissioner at any
time, although the Commissioner will not usually investigate until the
public authority’s internal review procedure has been concluded.

 

Kind Regards

 

 

Steve Hanratty
