examined electronic calendars of those officers and members who are
involved in the discussions around the Whitehouse Farm development. Due to
the data retention policy of West Sussex County Council, calendar entries

Please find accompanying this response, a plan of the WSCC ownership in

parties involved in these discussions, you would need to conduct a Land
Registry search and obtain title certificates for the land in question.

just with officers of County Council or were Members of the Council also
involved directly or indirectly. Information on names of individuals is
