Dear Sir

Thank you for your information request which was received by the Council
on 17 June 2019.  The matter has been dealt with under the Environmental
Information Regulations 2004.

The requested information is attached. The cost and viability information
has been withheld as it has the potential to prejudice the landowners and
developers ability to bring the sites forward in a competitive market
and development of the third party sites will be dependant on a
competitive environment. Furthermore, the third party landowners requested
the financial information remains confidential and is not shared with
adjacent landowners.    The Council considers this information to be
exempt under Regulation 12(5)(e) and Regulations 12(5)(f) of the
Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

A public authority may refuse to disclose information to the extent that
its disclosure would adversely affect –

(e) – the confidentiality of commercial or industrial information where
such confidentially is provided by law to protect a legitimate economic

(f) – the interests of the person(s) who provided the information where
that person -

(i)was not under, and could not have been put under, any legal obligation
to supply it to that or any other public authority;

(ii)did not supply it in circumstances such that that or any other public
authority is entitled apart from these Regulations to disclose it; and

(iii)has not consented to its disclosure

The Council considers that the public interest in maintaining the
exceptions outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

Under the Re-Use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015, you are
free to use any of the information that you have been provided with by the
Council in response to this request.  The information may be re-used
subject to the terms of the [1]Open Government Licence.

If you consider that the Council has failed to comply with a requirement
of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, you may make
representations in writing to the Council within forty working days of
receiving this letter under Regulation 11 of the 2004 Regulations.  Such
representations should be addressed to the Chief Executive, High Peak
Borough Council, Town Hall, Buxton, Derbyshire SK17 6EL.  The Council will
consider your representations and any supporting evidence which you may
produce and notify you of the Council’s decision within forty working days
of the date that the Council received your written representations.

have the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner at:
