Dear Mr. Simpson

 

Request for Information

 

I refer to your email of 7 June 2019, seeking information in relation to

governed by the provisions of the Environmental Information (Scotland)
Regulations 2004 – rather than the Freedom of Information legislation –
and it is in terms of these Regulations that my response is made.

 

Returning to your request and having investigated, I can advise that the
information you seek is publically available on the Councils website or
via the Councils online planning portal.  For ease of reference please
find set out below links to the relevant page and the online portal.  To
access information on the portal, enter the reference number 09/00818/FUL
into the search box.

I can advise that North Lanarkshire Council, having regard to the
provisions of Regulation 16 of the Environmental Information (Scotland)
Regulations 2004, has established a procedure whereby any person who has
requested information in terms of those Regulations, may make
representations if it appears to the applicant that the authority has not
complied with any requirements of the Regulations in relation to the
applicant’s request.  Any such representations require to be made in
writing and received by the Council not later than 40 working days after
either the date that the applicant receives any decision or notification
which the applicant believes does not comply with these Regulations or the
date by which such a decision or notification should have been made, or
any other action should be taken by the authority, but was not made or
taken.  Any such representations should be addressed to the Head of
Business for Legal and Democratic Solutions, Civic Centre, Windmillhill
Street, Motherwell, ML1 1AB.  Accordingly, if you wish to seek a review,
please write to the Head of Business for Legal and Democratic Solutions.

 

I would advise, also, that in terms of Regulation 17 of the Environmental
Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004, a person who is dissatisfied with
a notice given by the local authority under Regulation 16(4) of the
Regulations - 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 Regulations.  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: [4][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
