Dear Sir/Madam,

May I also be sent a total of how much Hackney LBC spent over the last ten years on incentivising inward investment into the Borough if this data is available to public inspection?

May I be sent a copy of ‘A Strategic Approach to Inward Investment’ report if available to public inspection?

Finally may I be sent a copy of any documents detailing ‘value for money’ and ‘best use of resources’ of both internal commercial market regeneration and attracting external investment into the domestic economy if available to public inspection?

Yours faithfully,

Mr. J. M. Keenan

Hello Ms. Lay,

This response included a link that didn't contain the requested data:

May I be sent a copy of `A Strategic Approach to Inward Investment' report if available to public inspection?

This information is exempt under Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act. Section 21 (2a) states that information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant (even though it is accessible only on payment) is exempt. In this instance, the information is available via the council's website.


May I instead be actually sent a copy of `A Strategic Approach to Inward Investment' report?

Yours sincerely,

Mr. J. M. Keenan

Zoe Rowland, Hackney Borough Council
