Dear Mr Jamieson,

 

Thank you for your information request of 6 October 2017.  Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested.

 

Please provide copies of all letters, emails and written correspondence
between Aberdeen City Council (specifically services:

- Planning and Sustainable Development,

- Legal and Democratic Services)

 

and Aberdeen Football Club and their agents in relation to the Kingsford
Stadium Planning Application. I do not wish to receive copies of documents
which already exist on the planning portal.

 

I am requesting correspondence in the following date range:

- Monday 18th September to Thursday 5th October inclusive.

Please see attached.

 

Please note that third party names and personal details, as well as the
names of ACC Officers who are below Head of Service level have been
redacted (blacked out) from the attached correspondence. This is because
ACC considers that this information is excepted from disclosure. In order
to comply with its obligations under the terms of Regulation 13 of the
EIRs, ACC hereby give notice that we are refusing your request under the
terms of Regulation 11(2) in conjunction with Regulation 11(3)(a)(i) –
Personal Information - of the EIRs.

 

In making this decision ACC considered the following points:

 

ACC is of the opinion that Regulation 11(2) applies to the information
specified above as the information in question is personal information
relating to living individuals, and the applicant is not the data subject.

 

ACC is of the opinion that Regulation 11(3)(a)(i) applies, as ACC
considers that disclosure of this information would be a breach of the
first Data Protection Principle (that personal information must be
processed fairly and lawfully) and second Data Protection Principle
(personal information must only be processed for a specific and lawful
purpose).  ACC Officers who are below Head of Service level and third
parties named within the attached document would not expect ACC to release
this information about them into the public domain under the EIRs (or the
Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA)).

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Grant Webster

Information Compliance Officer

 

INFORMATION ABOUT THE HANDLING OF YOUR REQUEST

 

As the information which you requested is environmental information, as
defined under Regulation 2(1) of the Environmental Information (Scotland)
Regulations 2004 (the EIRs), ACC considered that it was exempt from
release through FOISA, and must therefore give you notice that we are
refusing  your request under Section 39(2) of FOISA (Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002).  However, you have a separate right to
access the information which you have requested under Regulation 5 of the
EIRs, under which ACC has handled your request. Please refer to the
attached PDF for more information about your rights under the EIRs.
