Eversley Simon, Haringey Borough Council

Dear Mr Keever,

                                                                                                    

Thank you for your request for information dated 5 November 2020 in which
you asked for: all correspondence from April 2020–present between David
Joyce (Director of Housing, Regeneration and Planning) and other officers
of Haringey Council regarding the ‘pod’ replacement works and other major
works on Noel Park Estate.

 

We have considered your request and identified emails which are within the
scope of your request. However our view is that the information you
requested would be information which is exempt from release under sections
36 and 42 of the Freedom of Information Act.

 

Section 36 exemption – effective conduct of public affairs

 

The exemption allows that information may be exempt under section
36(2)(b)(i) or (ii) if its disclosure would, or would be likely to inhibit
the ability of public authority staff and others to express themselves
openly, honestly and completely, or to explore extreme options, when
providing advice or giving their views as part of the process of
deliberation. The rationale for this is that inhibiting the provision of
advice or the exchange of views may impair the quality of decision making
by the public authority.

 

Correspondence has been withheld because, in the reasonable opinion of the
Council’s Qualified Person, disclosure of the information contained
therein would or would be likely to inhibit the free and frank provision
of advice or the free and frank exchange of views for the purposes of
deliberation and /or would otherwise prejudice or would be likely to
prejudice the effective conduct of public affairs.

 

Where a qualified exemption is engaged, the information must still be
disclosed unless the public interest in maintaining the exemptions
outweighs the public interest in disclosing it. Therefore following the
Qualified Person’s Opinion, we have applied the public interest test.

The public interest arguments for releasing this information are that it
would be in accordance with the general principles of the FOIA and to
encourage transparency in the Council’s decision making processes.

The public interest arguments for withholding the information are that
officers and elected members need a ‘safe space’ to develop ideas, debate
live issues, and reach decisions away from external interference and
distraction, and to be able to engage in a free and frank exchange of
views. The issue is very much a current matter, and is due to be
considered by Cabinet in January.

 

Our view is that the public interest in maintaining the exemption
outweighs the public interest in disclosure.

                                                                                                                                          

Section 42 exemption – legal professional privilege.

Section 42 (1) says : Information in respect of which a claim to legal
professional privilege or, in Scotland, to confidentiality of
communications could be maintained in legal proceedings is exempt
information.

When relying on this exemption, we must consider the public interest.

It is acknowledged that the concept of legal professional privilege is
itself founded on the strong public interest in maintaining privacy
between lawyers and their clients. As a result in cases involving legal
professional privilege, the public interest in favour of disclosure must
outweigh the acknowledged public interest in safeguarding openness in
communications between lawyers and their clients and the protection of
full and frank legal advice. We do not think that the public interest in
favour of the disclosure of the requested legal advice is sufficiently
strong in this case.

 

This letter is a refusal notice as required by the Freedom of Information
Act.

 

If you are unhappy with how we have responded to your request you can ask
us to conduct an Internal Review or complaint about how your request was
handled. If so, please contact the Corporate Feedback Team as follows
