Access Issue Log

We're waiting for Jamie Mann to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear North Lanarkshire Council,

Please provide a log of all local access issues recorded between 1 April 2017 and the present date. Please detail each access issue in xls spreadsheet format (not Pdf or a Word/txt document), broken down by financial year. Please include:

– The nature of the issue, including key details such as who or what has caused the issue, the log date and the location
– What actions have been taken to resolve each issue (please also advise if no action has been taken)
– Whether the issue still exists, or has been resolved (and if so, how)

Yours faithfully,

Jamie Mann

Dear Sir/madam

I refer again to your e-mail dated 1 March 2022 seeking information in relation to an "Access Issue Log".

Your request is receiving attention, however, in order to take this forward, please by way of clarification could you be more specific in what information you require in relation to "Access Issue Log", as I do not recognise this term or know what it refers to.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Dear Angelene,

I'm hoping to be provided with a list of issues which have prevented access to land in your local authority, such as walking routes being obstructed. Sorry for not being clearer.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Mann

Request for Information

I refer again to your email dated 28 February 2022 seeking a log of all local access issues recorded and you email dated 31 March 2022 providing clarification of your request.

Having regard to the nature of your request it appears to me that it is governed by the provisions of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 rather than the Freedom of Information legislation and it is in terms of these Regulations that my response is made.

Returning to your request and having investigated, I can advise as follows:-

Please note that there are 2 sections within the Council in which this information is held and the response has been provided separately for each section.

Planning & Regeneration

Please find attached records identified during the specified timeframe.

Environmental Assets

The information is only held from April 2020 and in this regard, please find attached the records identified, adjusted in terms of Regulation 11 of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 to exclude personal data, specifically names, initials and personal information of employees and third parties.

I can advise that North Lanarkshire Council, having regard to the provisions of Regulation 16 of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004, has established a procedure whereby any person who has requested information in terms of those Regulations, may make representations if it appears to the applicant that the authority has not complied with any requirements of the Regulations in relation to the applicant's request. Any such representations require to be made in writing and received by the Council not later than 40 working days after either the date that the applicant receives any decision or notification which the applicant believes does not comply with these Regulations or the date by which such a decision or notification should have been made, or any other action should be taken by the authority, but was not made or taken. Any such representations should be addressed to the Head of Legal and Democratic Solutions, Civic Centre, Windmillhill Street, Motherwell, ML1 1AB. Accordingly, if you wish to seek a review, please write to the Head of Legal and Democratic Solutions.

I would advise, also, that in terms of Regulation 17 of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004, a person who is dissatisfied with a notice given by the local authority under Regulation 16(4) of the Regulations - ie. a notice following a review of a decision by a local authority, or by the failure of a local authority to give such a notice - may make application to the Scottish Information Commissioner for a decision as to whether, in any respect specified in that application, the request for information to which the requirement relates has been dealt with in accordance with the Regulations. Such an application must be made within six months of the review decision and be in writing or in another form which, by reason of it having some permanency is capable of being used for subsequent reference. The application must state the name of the applicant and provide an address for correspondence. The application must also specify the request for information to which the requirement for review relates, the matter which gave rise to the applicant's dissatisfaction with the original decision of the local authority and the matter which gives rise to the applicant's dissatisfaction with the decision on review by the local authority or the failure of the local authority to issue such a decision. The Scottish Information Commissioner can be contacted as follows:-

Scottish Information Commissioner
Kinburn Castle
Doubledykes Road
St. Andrews
KY16 9DS
email: [email address]

Appeals to the Scottish Information Commissioner can also be made online via the following link: -

www.itspublicknowledge.info/Appeal

I hope this information is sufficient for your purpose. If, however, you require further information - or I can assist in any other way - please let me know.

Yours faithfully
