Dear Mr Porter

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000

ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION REGULATIONS 2004

 

With reference to your request:

 

Can the Council please disclose drawings/ plans etc regarding proposed and
or planned residential development schemes for/on the land at Franklyn
Fields, Aylestone.

 

As explained in our letter to you, your request comes under the
Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) as it relates to ‘policies,
legislation, plans, programmes, environmental agreements, and activities
affecting or likely to affect or protect the elements of the environment’
as defined in section 2 (c) of the regulations.

 

The Council has to consider any exceptions under the Environmental
Information Regulations and undertake the relevant public interest tests. 
I’m sure you can appreciate the complexity involved in contacting all of
the parties involved to ensure that the answer you receive is fully in
line with all of the duties imposed under this legislation.

 

The exceptions which could be relevant and need to be considered are
listed below:

 

Exception 12 (4) (d) Relates to unfinished documents or incomplete data

Exception 12 (4) (e) Would involve disclosure of internal communications

Exception 12 (5) (c) Intellectual property rights

Exception 12 (5) (d) Confidentiality of public authority proceedings when
covered by law.

Exception 12 (5) (e) Confidentiality of commercial or industrial
information when protected by law to cover legitimate economic interest.

Exception 12 (5) (f) Interests of the person who provided the information.

Exception 12 (5) (g) Protection of the environment.

 

I cannot put the Council at risk of breaching confidentiality and must
therefore assess carefully whether any information we hold was given to us
in confidence. There is however a legitimate public interest in
environmental plans that I have to carefully balance. Such decisions are
never straight forward, and often throw up conflicting views.

 

I understand that further information has recently been released into the
public domain as part of the on-going decision-making process regarding
this site and I therefore hope to be able to come to a decision on your
request for information shortly.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Lynn Wyeth

Information Governance Manager

Dear info-requests,

I am asking if Leicester City Council has any other information.

Yours sincerely,

Nigel Porter

info-requests, Leicester City Council

Dear Mr Porter,

We responded to your request 3467 for 'drawings/ plans etc regarding proposed and or planned residential development schemes for/on the land at Franklyn Fields, Aylestone' by sending the two plans that the council holds. We have double checked that the plans that were provided in response to your request were the only ones held. There were some earlier draft plans which were formalised and put into an electronic format and it was these formal plans that were sent to you. The earlier draft plans are exempt under Reg 12 (4) (d) as they are unfinished documents or incomplete data.

Could you clarify what you are referring to when you ask for "any other information". If there is anything that you believe you have not received in relation to your request, please outline what this may be so that we are able to locate it. The Freedom of Information Act requires you to identify the information that you are requesting, Section 1 (3) of FOIA says 'where a public authority reasonably requires further information in order to identify and locate the information requested' the authority is not obliged to comply with the request 'unless it is supplied with that further information'.

Regards

The Information Governance Team
Leicester City Council
