Dear Information Officer,

I am asking again for an internal review as I have not asked you for a fact checking report as you were informed of the correct report which was being requested on the 5th of November 2016 and subsequently on the 11th November 2016. You seemed to have evaded my points on clarity 11th November delaying with providing random information and not the document I requested. Please be advised it is your remit under FOIA and EIA to either provide the correct document being requested 5th, 11th November 2016, or provide a reason why this is withheld or provide a response that this document is not held.

I have clearly pointed out to you that this report from the Planning Inspector was duly required to be required as a response to the consultation on the Main Modifications in the Borough Local Plan. Can you please provide the proper response?

Yours sincerely,

CEO Mr Newbold.

Dear Mr Newbold
 
I have been asked, as a senior officer of the Council who has not been
involved in your case to conduct an internal review into the handling of
your recent Freedom of Information Request ref: 16/681.
 
Your request received 5^th November 2016
 
Can you please provide me with a copy of the Planning Inspector Richard E
Hollox BA(Hons) BSc (Econ) MPhil (Lond) FRTPI FRICS the Inspector report
which he wrote immediatly after the consultation  on the preliminary
findings  and Main Modifications report in respect to the final
consultation of the Local Plan Develelopment Plan Public Examination.
 
If you do not hold this report can you please note that this is not held.
 
You sent in clarification of this request 11^th November 2016
 
The report I am asking for is detailed on page 28-30 the  Procedural
Practice in Examination of Local Plans  written by the Planning
Inspectorate June 2016 (4th Edition v.1) [1]. It is stated here under Main
Modifications  5.24 - 5.33 Currently you have not provided this report
since 2014 and have not stated that it is not held. This is an unlawful
situation which you must resolve and act accordingly.
 
I do not know why you are not observing regulations and provide a
determination or report.
 
Our response sent 11^th November 2016
 
 
This information is held
 
We believe you are requesting the Fact Check version which was supplied to
you on the 17^th July 2015 ref: 15/353 – please see copy attached.
 
 
 
17^th November 2016, 9.36am you requested an internal review
 
I am asking again for an internal review as I have not asked you for a
fact checking report as you were informed of the correct report which was
being requested on the 5th of November 2016 and subsequently on the 11th
November 2016. You seemed to have evaded my points on clarity 11th
November delaying with providing random information and not the document I
requested. Please be advised it is your remit under FOIA and EIA to either
provide the correct document being requested 5th, 11th November 2016, or
provide a reason why this is withheld or provide a response that this
document is not held.
 
I have clearly pointed out to you that this report from the Planning
Inspector was duly required to be required as a response to the
consultation on the Main Modifications in the Borough Local Plan. Can you
please provide the proper response?
 
17^th November 2016 9.55am you sent
 
Would you be so kind to inform me which officer you have approached for
the information I have requested under FOIA / EIA Regulations as it is
clear you have sent me wrong information .
 
Review
 
After sending your request and clarification to our Planning Policy Team
they believed you were referring to the Fact Check version which was
provided to you on the 11^th November 2016.
 
Following your request for an internal review I have again checked with
our Planning Policy Team who have responded to me that the only report
received from the Planning Inspectorate following the issuance of the
fact-check version is that which is available to download from the
following website:
[1]http://www.hastings.gov.uk/planning/poli...
 
We hold no other report (s) or different versions of the Inspector’s
report other than the one available on the website and its fact-check
version.
 
I am unable to advise you who I contacted as this information is exempt
under Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 'personal data' this
is an absolute exemption and will not be provided.
 
I am satisfied your Freedom of Information request has been handled
correctly.
 
I trust that this letter deals with your concerns.
 
If you are still unhappy with our response you may complain to the
Information Commissioner who will decide whether the request has been
handled properly.
