Laura made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to Selwyn College, Cambridge

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

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

Dear Selwyn College, Cambridge,

This is a formal request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
Could you please provide:

1) A complete list of all land that the college owns, including its approximate value.
2) A complete list of all property the college directly owns and lets, including the approximate value of each.
3) The names of any letting agents the college uses when renting property.
4) A list of properties that the college has investments in, including the approximate value of each.
With regards to all of the above, could you please state whether the property/land is currently in use, and if so for what purpose.

If you are to invoke Section 43 to withhold information in relation to any of these questions please note you must provide details of the exact FOIA exemption, details of who would be prejudiced by this information, and a public interest test justifying a conclusion with arguments for and against the release of the information.

If you are to invoke Section 12 to withhold information in relation to any of these questions please provide details of how locating, retrieving and extracting this information would exceed the appropriate limit of £450 as set out in the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004. Please also be aware of your duty under section 16 (1) of the Act to advise and assist me in narrowing my request to bring it within the appropriate limit.

Thank you very much for your assistance with this request. If you would like any clarification on the information I have asked for, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to receiving your response in the next 20 working days.

Yours faithfully,

Laura Hone

Martin Pierce,

Dear Laura,

Please find below our response to your FOI request.

In response to questions 1 and 2, a list of all land and property owned by the College is set out below. We don't hold approximate values of the land and each of the properties and would refer you to section 12 of the Act as to obtain this information would be excessively time consuming and expensive.

With regard to question 3, only one of the properties is rented to someone who is not a student or fellow of the College, and this property has been rented to the same person for many years. The College therefore does not use letting agents currently.

With regard to question 4, the College does not hold properties directly for investment purposes.

I hope this is helpful by way of response.

Regards

Martin
