[Name Removed] (Account suspended)

Dear Barnet Borough Council,

Under either the Freedom of Information Act or the Environmental Information Regulations, can I kindly request the following information from your planning department:

Background: In 2012 there was a fire at Upper Fosters, New Brent Street. Subsequently the tower block was re-wired in respect of Electricity supply.

Data Requested: as per BS 7671, Part P, the Wiring Regulations can you please supply copies of the following information:

1) Electrical Installation Certificate or Minor Work Certificate that confirms that the work meets BS 7671; and
2) Building Regulations Compliance Certificate that confirms that the work meets the Building Regulations.
3) Confirmation of whether the certificates were produced/issued by the Electrician who did the works or by Barnet Council.
4) Confirmation of the name of the company that completed these works.

As I am unclear whether this request should be dealt with by Barnet Council or the Landlord Barnet Homes, I will also send this to Barnet Homes.

Yours faithfully,

A [name removed]

Dear Ms. [name removed]

Housing services (including homelessness, allocations, housing repairs and so forth) are provided by Barnet Homes who are an Arm’s Length Management Organisation (ALMO) who manage the council’s housing stock and associated services on the council’s behalf. They are a public authority under Freedom of Information Act 2000 and so you may make a FOI request to them. Their contact details are:
