Dear Seral Mustafa,

Thank you for your response and the information provided. Please can you clarify the dates funds were allocated and the names of the parties that paid these contributions?

Yours sincerely,

Veronica

Seral Mustafa, Barnet Borough Council

Dear Veronica
 
I was sorry to hear your concerns.
 
Your complaint.  Please can you clarify the dates funds were allocated and
the names of the parties that paid these contributions?
 
I have consulted with the Council's S106 team and they have confirmed with
me that they have checked the reports that they are able to generate from
our monitoring system. The s106 team advise that they are unable to
generate a report that shows the dates monies were allocated. If the
service were to ask  IT consultants to prepare a report that included the
allocated date, it would be prohibitively expensive, above £450 per
report.
In the main, the contribution will have been made by the developer that is
named in the s106. However, development can change hands from grant of
planning permission to implementation, and may also change hands during
construction. In addition, the payee may be a lender on behalf of a
developer. The S106 team do not normally concern themselves with who in
particular has made a payment, as long as payment has been received.
Therefore, to answer the information request the s106 team would need to
look at each individual receipt and search historic records for
information that may or may not be held. Payees may make a 'remittance
advice' when making a Bacs payment, but the planning service do not keep
copies of these.

I therefore apologise that the above explanation following EIR exception
was not included in the original Decision Notice sent to you. For
completeness I have included below.

Regulation 12(4)(b) of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004
provides an exception to the disclosure of information in situations where
the request is manifestly unreasonable. This exception may be invoked
where the request places a substantial and unreasonable cost or burden of
dealing with it. The purpose of the exception is to protect public
authorities from exposure to a disproportionate burden or an unjustified
level of distress, disruption or irritation, in handling information
requests.

This is a qualified exception under EIR which means that consideration
must also be given to whether in all the circumstances of the case the
public interest favouring disclosure is greater than the public interest
in maintaining the exemption. This is a qualified exception under the EIR
which means that consideration must also be given to whether in all the
circumstances of the case the public interest favouring disclosure is
greater than the public interest in maintaining the exemption. These
factors are that the decision making processes of public functions should
be transparent and open to scrutiny in order to inform the public debate.
The case against is the burden on the public authority and diversion away
from its core business.

It would take a prohibitive amount of time to compile the information
requested, and the service estimate circa 30 minutess per payment. Even
then, we may not even find the information. On this basis, regrettably we
are unable to provide the information requested to you.
 
Thank you for your interest in Barnet Council.
 

Many thanks
