Simone Barrett-White

Dear South Cambridgeshire District Council,

I'd like to request all the details you have related to the disposal of the John Faulkner school site in Sawston to private developers.

This should include minutes of meetings where this was discussed, and any supporting documentation related to decisions made. Project documentations, references in relevant committees and so on.

While I understand that some of this might have been commercially sensitive at the time, I don't think there should be any reason not to release this now. (Especially as the prices of the properties converted on this site are in the public domain.)

I am aware that it was a sealed bidding process to buy this site, and it would be nice to have a list of all the bids submitted. (I see no reason to redact the names of the bidders, as the decisions have all been made.)

If there are other bodies that hold information relating to this, I'd appreciate it if you could tell me which, as I'll approach them as well.

I realise this probably isn't an instantly available list of information, but if you could try, that would be most appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Simone Barrett-White

South Cambridgeshire District Council

Hi there,

Oh, thanks for that. I didn't receive your second response (I did get the first acknowledgement) but have it now.

I have an outstanding request with CCC, so I'll wait for them to reply.

Yours sincerely,

Simone Barrett-White
