Dear Ms Giggins,

 

Request for information: Planning Department Organisational Structure

 

Please see below the Council’s response to your request for information.

 

You have asked;

 

Please supply an up to date organizational structure for the Planning
Department.

Please find attached a structure chart for Planning Services.

 

Please note, names of officers below third tier management level,
excluding Planning Officers, have been redacted as this constitutes
personal data belonging to a third party.

 

Therefore, the Council is withholding this information under Section 40(2)
of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as the release of this data would
breach the first principle of the Data Protection Act 2018.  A copy of the
exemption annex is attached for your information.

Please could you also provide the designated planning contact names for
Parish Councils/Councillors?

If you are requesting a list of West Berkshire Councillors that sit on
planning committees, this information can be obtained from the Membership
of Committees document on the website here;
[1]http://info.westberks.gov.uk/CHttpHandle...

 

If you are requesting a list of Parish Council planning contact names, the
Council does not hold this information. You will need to redirect your
request to the Parish Councils or look on the Parish Council’s websites,
to determine who sits on their local planning committees.

 

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you may ask
for an internal review. You should contact The FoI Reviewing Officer,
Strategic Support, Council Offices, Market Street, Newbury RG14 5LD, email
[2][email address]  if you wish to request a review. If you are not
content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to
apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The
Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire SK9 5AF

 

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Suzi Kenchington

Dear foi,

Many thanks for your responses.

For clarification I was asking for the contact names of the West Berkshire Council officer/s who are the 'go to' officers for Parish Councils/Councillors when there are queries about a planning application.

As an example please see the minutes from Hungerford Town Council's November Environment and Planning Meeting.

Yours sincerely,
