Former Stepps PS site geotechnical report

North Lanarkshire Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I request full disclosure of the contents of the final report of the geotechnical survey carried out on the former Stepps primary school site in School Road, Stepps.

A geotechnical survey was undertaken on behalf of NLC prior to the sale of the land to Clyde Valley Housing Association. As a result of the survey report, NLC gave a rebate to CVHA to cover the remediation costs. Please also include full details and cost of the remediation work carried out and the evidence presented to NLC that the cost of this work equalled the rebate paid to CVHA.

Yours faithfully,

Ken Maxwell

Keachie Jacqueline, North Lanarkshire Council

Dear Mr. Maxwell,

I refer again to your e mail dated 26 October 2009 seeking information
on the former site of Stepps Primary School.

Having investigated, I can advise that this authority did not carry out
site investigations at the site of the former Stepps Primary School, and
accordingly in terms of Section 17 of the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002 I must advise you that the information requested is
not held.

By way of some assistance, I can advise that it was Clyde Valley Housing
Association Limited who had the site investigation carried out. You may
find the undernoted electronic link to be of some assistance in
obtaining some of the information you seek:-

I can advise that North Lanarkshire Council, having regard to the
provisions of Section 21 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002, has established a procedure whereby any person who has requested
information and is in any way dissatisfied with the decision on that
request, can require a review of that decision by writing to the
Executive Director of Corporate Services, Civic Centre, Windmillhill
Street, Motherwell ML1 1AB. Accordingly, if you are dissatisfied with
this decision and seek such review please write to the Executive
Director of Corporate Services.

I would advise, also, that in terms of Section 47 of the Act a person
who is dissatisfied with a notice given by the local authority under
Section 21 of the Act - ie. a notice following a review of a decision by
a local authority, or by the failure of a local authority to give such a
notice - may make application to the Scottish Information Commissioner
for a decision as to whether, in any respect specified in that
application, the request for information to which the requirement
relates has been dealt with in accordance with the Act. Such an
application must be in writing or in another form which, by reason of it
having some permanency is capable of being used for subsequent reference
- for example a recording made in audio or video tape - must state the
name of the applicant and an address for correspondence and must specify
the request for information to which the requirement for review relates,
the matter which gave rise to the applicant's dissatisfaction with the
original decision of the local authority and the matter which gives rise
to the applicant's dissatisfaction with the decision on review by the
local authority or the failure of the local authority to issue such a
decision. The Scottish Information Commissioner can be contacted as
follows:-


Scottish Information Commissioner
Kinburn Castle
Doubledykes Road
St. Andrew's
KY16 9DS

I hope this information is sufficient for your purpose. If, however,
you require further information - or I can assist in any other way -
please let me know.

Yours sincerely,

Jacqueline Keachie
