The development of 23 Apartments in The Mayfields; FOLLOW UP (Section 106 money)

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Redditch Borough Council,

This FoI request relates to the approved application: 2011/019/FUL
(The development of 23 Apartments in The Mayfields).
In an earlier FoI request about S106 funding which I made on 6 November 2016, I received the following reply:
“Mayfields – this application has not yet met its trigger point and therefore S106 funding has not yet been received. This is being monitored and invoice will be raised once the trigger point has been met. The trigger point can be different for any development. Eg. it can be before commencement of development or 50% occupancy or 80% occupancy etc.”

My questions:
1.Have the trigger point(s) been met?
2. If the trigger points have been met, when did this/these events occur?

3. Please provide full details of how this S106 funding has spent.

Thank you.
This FoI request is being made on behalf of several local residents in this area of Redditch.

Yours faithfully,

P. Bladon

Dear foi RBC,
Thank you for responses to my No. 1 and No. 3.

For No. 2 there is a problem:
"2. If the trigger points have been met, when did this/these events occur? "
Your reply BELOW isn't clear, the link [1] doesn't work; kindly provide, for example , the date(s).
"The Legal Agreement containing the relevant trigger points is available [1]here"

Thank you.
Yours sincerely,

P. Bladon

We regret that we are unable to deal with your freedom of information
request at this time. There is a huge amount of information about the
council available on its website and we would urge you to look at this
site first to find the answers to your questions.  Reports and minutes
considered by formal meetings of Council and its committees can be seen at
this [1]<link> and information about planning applications can be seen
[2]<here>.

 

Given the outbreak of coronavirus, the council is prioritising essential
services and we hope you will understand why dealing with freedom of
information requests is now not a priority. The outbreak has reduced
council staffing levels with the expectation that there will be an
increasing number of staff who are ill or self-isolating. Therefore, in
many cases, the staff who might know where to locate the information you
seek may simply not be available. Also, so far as “round robin” requests
from the  media and think-tanks are concerned – particularly any that
might be to do with the council’s preparation for or response to
coronavirus – our priority has to be responding to the outbreak and
keeping a limited range of essential services running.

 

We will therefore not be providing responses to any freedom of information
requests received after 19th March 2020, beyond this generic
acknowledgement. We will review this situation at the end of May 2020
whether to extend this position. If you wish to resubmit your request
after we have ended the temporary suspension of the service, you are
welcome to do so and we will consider it at that time.

 

The Council’s media team is available to provide a comment on any specific
issue raised by the media in the usual way but this is not a route to
circumvent temporary suspension of responses to freedom of information
requests.

 

We have informed the Information Commissioner’s Office of our position and
advised them that we will also decline to deal with any complaints that
the ICO may receive as a result of the temporary suspension of this
service.
