Our reply to your request is:  

Dear Sharon Smithen,
 
Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of Information
Act relating to Redland Green School. 
 
Please could you disclose a copy of all Council minutes from 1999 to 2003
dealing with the use of Stoke Lodge BS9. Why have these notes been redacted?
Please follow this link as Council meeting are already in the public
domain:  [1]https://www.bristol.gov.uk/council-meeti...
 
In particular, please disclose the minites recording why the decision was
made to build the secondary's school at Redland Green not Stoke Lodge BS9.
Please also disclose all notes when the heritage and visual amenities of the
site were discussed.
Please find attached documents relating to the decision to locate Redland
Green School on its current site.
 
Please also disclose the minutes where it was divided to allow Cotham School
to use the site. Please also disclose the minutes from 2010/2011 when it was
decided to grant a lease of 125 years to Cotham Academy of the site.
It is the school’s governing body who made the decision to convert to
academy status, following consultation with all interested parties. It is
the Secretary of State for Education who approved the school’s application. 
All further decisions are made between the school’s governing body and
officers from the Department for Education (DfE).  The role of the Local
Authority is to oversee the transition. The 125 year lease to Cotham Academy
forms part of the change of status to that of an Academy. The legal process
to transfer the land and buildings to the academy trust under the lease is
not something that the Council has any control over and therefor there is no
‘decision’ regarding this.  Further information on academy conversions can
be found on the DfE’s website: 
[2]https://www.gov.uk/search?q=academy+stat...
 
Please also disclose a copy of the book  drafted by BCC discussing the
visual effect that a school would have on either Redland Green and  Stoke
Lodge.
Planning information is already in the public domain (if that’s what the
information request relates to, if not please clarify this part of the
request) an is available to view via an appointment.  Please contact

Dear "No Reply @ Bristol" <[email address]>,

I have been unable to access the relevant minutes dealing with the decision to allow Cotham use of Stoke Lodge. Please kindly forward the notes detailing this decision.

Also there must be some minutes detailing the decision to provided Cotham with a lease of a listed site. Again, please provide minutes.i can to follow your link and find those minutes.

As this is an acknowledged beautiful parkland that is listed ...were the archaeology department notified and did they have a say? Please provide any correspondence between departments.

Also repairs have been done to the wall ...there was no planning. application. Who authorised those repairs?

Yours sincerely,

Sharon Smithen
