Dear Liverpool City Council,

By law, you should normally have responded promptly and by 3 August 2020 to the FOI request I made on 3 July 2020, which was titled Cost of Acquiring Land on the East side of Derby Road MS631148.

Your response is therefore overdue so please now give this matter your urgent attention.

Yours sincerely,

Brian Abbott

Dear Liverpool City Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Liverpool City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Cost of acquiring Land on the East side of Derby Road MS631148'.

My request on 3 July 2020 asked for the acquisition date and cost of MS631148, which was one of the sites purchased in connection with the Mayoral Recommendation to acquire land for the Cemex plant on Brunswick Place and premises for King Construction (the trading name of Knowlsey Contractors Ltd).

The legal deadline for you to reply was 3 August 2020 and as you have failed to respond, despite a further 5 weeks having elapsed, I am now requesting an internal review. If a reply is not received in the next week a complaint about your handling of this request will be sent to the Information Commissioner.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Brian Abbott
