Dear Mr Henderson
Freedom of Information Act 2000
Request for information
Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Request
I'm quite interested in the design of, and would like to request floorplans for the now closed St
Catherine's Catholic High School on Holdsworth Road, Halifax if they are still held. It would be
great if this included labelled rooms, but it's fine if not.
The council publishes applications for planning on the planning portal here: Simple
Search (calderdale.gov.uk) this can be used to search any applications that are related to
St Catherine’s Catholic High School which would include floorplans. This can use the
map search to find the property and the planning history on it.
We understand that the property was completed in December 1957 so the council should
hold a plan as we have records from between 1948-1973 (ie the latter date is when we
started recording things on the computer.)
However to access this information would require a considerable amount of time at
present and access to records are held in council offices that are not currently open to
work in as officers are working at home. We are hoping to be able to confirm that we hold
floorplans and be able to provide if so soon when an officer has access.
I hope this is helpful to you and any feedback from you would be welcomed.
If for any reason you are unhappy with our response, you are entitled to approach Tracie
Robinson, Corporate Information Manager, Calderdale MBC, Town Hall, Crossley Street,
Halifax HX1 1UJ to request an internal review. Please note your request must be made in
writing and submitted within two months of the date of this letter.
If you remain dissatisfied with our decision, under Section 50 of the Freedom of Information
Act you are entitled to contact the Information Commissioner, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, SK9 5AF.
