Green Belt policy assessments supplied in relation to planning application 19/01041/FUL

Currently waiting for a response from City of York Council, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear City of York Council,

In relation to the following planning application:

19/01041/FUL | Single storey extensions front and rear, enlarged car park | Woodlands Respite Care Centre 120 Thief Lane York YO10 3HU

The planning officer was offered a full policy response to the Green Belt status of the site.

I have asked the council previously in my letter of 30 July 2019 to notify me if the planning officer acquired such a full policy assessment prior to making the planning determination and if so to provide me with a copy of any such assessment.

I received a response from the Planning Officer on the 19 August 2019 that the information I had requested would be provided to me within 14 days.

It is now 09 October 2019 and I have not yet received this information.

I am therefore making an FOI request for you to supply a copy of all Green Belt policy assessment documents that were provided to the Planning Officer prior to the Planning Application determination being made, or to state that such information does not exist.

The FOI legislation requires that you provide information as quickly as you are able and in this case it would not be reasonable to wait the full 20 days. Since I have already been informed that the information would be provided to me by 02 September 2019 I expect that you can just send it across with very little further effort.

Therefore, In the event that I have not received the information from you within 5 working days I will proceed to make a complaint to the ICO.

Please send all future correspondence regarding this FOI request via the the Whatdotheyknow website.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Wedgwood
