Beech Walk Play Area

J Hepple made this Freedom of Information request to Scarborough Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Waiting for an internal review by Scarborough Borough Council of their handling of this request.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have been informed that someone has applied for the Beech Walk
Play Area to be given Village Green Status. Could you please tell
me if this is true or not and if true, how far along the process
this request is?

I have also been told that once Village Green Status has been
granted, that nothing can be built on the land. Could you please
confirm this?

As I understand it, SBC are wanting to expand the Play Area at
Beech Walk. This field floods every winter. Could you therefore
please tell me what drainage plans are in place and if Planning
Permission has been granted?

I also understand that there has been a petition handed in
objecting to the expansion of this play area by the local people
(people living around Beech Walk Play Area). Could you please
inform me if SBC has to take notice of this petition or can SBC
just ignore it and do what it wants to do?

Yours faithfully,

J Hepple

Dear Sir or Madam,

On the 11th June 2009, I submitted a number of questions under The Freedom Of Information Act to Scarborough Borough Council, for which I should have received answers to, from yourselves by the 9th July 2009.

I have not yet received any answers from yourselves at Scarborough Council and would like to remind you that under the Freedom Of Information Act, that you are now breaking the law by not having answered the questions and replying to myself.

I am therefore requesting an internal review as to why my questions have not been answered in accordance with the Freedom Of Information Act.
