Dear Seral Mustafa,

Thank you for your response with the details requested. Please can you specify the dates money was spent and allocated and also the name of the party that paid the contributions?

Yours sincerely,

Mr Stevenson

Seral Mustafa, Barnet Borough Council

Dear Mr Stevenson

Thank you for your email, I was sorry to hear your concerns about not
receiving all the information requested. 

Your complaint is as follows, Please can you specify the dates money was
spent and allocated and also the name of the party that paid the
contributions?

I have consulted with the S106 team and they have confirmed with me that
they have checked the reports that we are able to generate from our
monitoring system.  the s106 team are unable to generate a report that
shows the dates monies were allocated.  If we were to ask our 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 ourselves 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 does not keep
copies of these. 

I apologise that the following EIR exception was not included in the
original Decision Notice.  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. The public interest means what is in the
best interests to the public.

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, the service estimates circa 30 mins 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.

Yours sincerely
