Business meetings by eleted councillors and council employees with Kora

The request was partially successful.

Dear Cambridgeshire County Council,

I would like to make the following Freedom of Information request. In relation to the proposed occupation by Kora of the third floor of Cambridge City public library, and any other proposed contracts with Kora, how many meetings have been conducted between representatives of Kora and the county council, who has attended these meetings (elected members and officers of the council), and where have these meetings taken place. In addition can the council provide minutes, and agenda for all such meetings.

Further to the above has any elected member of the council, or officer of the council received any form of hospitality from Kora, or its parent group including lunches associated with meetings as described above.

Yours faithfully,

Paul lythgoe

FOI, Cambridgeshire County Council

Dear Mr Lythgoe,

 

Re: Freedom of Information Request ref 5101 – Meetings with Kora re
Cambridge Central Library

 

With regard to your email of 23 March, in which you requested information
about meetings with Kora about Cambridge Central Library, please accept my
sincere apologies as I advise that the Council’s response will be later
than the twenty working days as initially advised in the Council’s
acknowledgement of your request.

 

Unfortunately, there is a considerable amount of information and it has
taken longer than anticipated to collate everything required for the
Council‘s response.  We expect to be able to provide you with the
Council’s full response no later than 15 May 2015; however, if there are
any further delays, we will keep you updated.

 

Please be assured that the Council takes its obligations under access to
information seriously and officers are working to ensure that the Council
is able to respond as soon as practicable.

 

Please again accept my apologies for the delay and my thanks for your
patience in this matter.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Georgina

Dear Mr Lythgoe,

 

Re: Freedom of Information Request ref 5101 – Meetings with Kora re
Cambridge Central Library

 

Further to my email of 23 April, in which I advised you that there would
be a delay in the Council’s response to your Freedom of Information
request reference 5101, please accept my sincere apologies as I write to
advise you of a further delay.

 

As I explained in my earlier email, there is a considerable volume of
meeting minutes and agendas that the Council is looking to provide to you
in response to your request, however it is necessary that their contents
are checked to establish whether any of the exemptions under the Act
apply.  We expect to be able to send you a full response by 29 May 2015
but will keep you advised of any further delays.

 

Please accept my apologies again for the further delay and I hope that it
has not caused you any undue inconvenience.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Georgina

Dear Mr Lythgoe,

 

I write with reference to your request of 23 March 2015 regarding Meetings
with Kora re Cambridge Central Library.  I can confirm that the Council
will send you its full and final response today via its Managed File
Transfer tool (MFT).  The MFT is a secure method of transferring
information electronically.  In this instance, because of the large volume
of the information contained in the Council’s response, sending it via
normal email is not possible.

 

You will receive two emails; one which contains a link to where the
information is being stored, and the second will include a password which
will allow you to access the package.  All you are required to do is click
on the link and input the password when prompted; after which you will be
able to download the documents and store them on your own computer.  The
password will not be required again.

 

Now that the information has been released, there will also be a copy
published on the Council’s Disclosure Log on the website.  This will take
affect from 21:00 this evening which is the time the website automatically
updates.  A full copy of the Council’s response will be available for any
interested parties to access via the link below:

 

[1]http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/site/cu...

 

Please again accept my apologies for the delay in the Council’s response. 
Because of the large volume of information, unfortunately, it took longer
than expected to ensure that all information had been collated and then
reviewed.  I hope that this has not caused you any inconvenience.

 

I hope this information is helpful but if you are unhappy with the service
you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint
or request a review, you should write to Dan Horrex, Corporate Information
Manager, Box SH1001, Shire Hall, Cambridge CB3 0AP or email
[2][Cambridgeshire County Council request email] within 40 days of the date of this letter.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
5AF.

 

Generally, the ICO will not undertake a review or make a decision on a
request until the internal review process has been completed.

 

Kind Regards

 

Georgina
