Dear Ms. Adams,

 

Freedom of Information Act Request (ref: LBH/6223017)

Fees Notice

 

Thank you for your request for information received on 25 April 2017 in
which you ask for the following information:

 

Ashley Road Technopark was purchased and sold on 27.3.15 by Haringey
Council at a loss of £9million.  Please provide all correspondence
relating to this transaction between council officers, Harris Academy
chain and elected members.  Please provide copy of the council meeting
which authorised this purchase and sale.  Please provide documentary
evidence that supports the evidence and rationale for this transaction.

 

Please accept our apology for the inordinate delay in our reply.

 

My response is as follows:

 

The Sale of Technopark was to the Harris Federation however the
transaction was agreed between the Education Funding Agency (EFA) and the
Council rather than directly with the Harris Federation.

 

Since there is substantial correspondence between council officers, our
agents and the EFA’s agents, we have estimated that it will cost more than
the ‘appropriate limit’ to provide all the correspondence relating to this
transaction.

 

Section 12 of the Act allows public authorities to refuse requests for
information where the cost of dealing with them would exceed the
appropriate limit, which for local government is set at £450. This
represents the estimated cost of one person spending 18 hours in
determining whether the department holds the information, locating,
retrieving and extracting the information.

 

In this instance, we have estimated that it will cost £712.00 to provide
you with the required information but the end cost is likely to be higher.
This amount is therefore over the appropriate limit as specified in the
regulations, and consequently we are not obliged by the Freedom of
Information Act to respond to your request; therefore we will not process
this element of your request.

 

The Cabinet decision authorising the acquisition and sale of the
Technopark was made in March 2015 and the Cabinet Report (January 2014)
can be found on the Council’s website – see link below.
