Dear Thomas Coward

 

Reference number: EIR/ENV/11/18/16556

 

On 22^nd November 2018 Hertfordshire County Council received the following
request for information from you:

 

“The use of road below refers to regarding High Leigh Garden Village
Development and Dinant link Road in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire.

 

It is known that you have given permissions to Lands Improvement Holdings
or their associated third parties such as Breheny  to close roads in your
County.

 

Therefore, please could you provide the agreement(s), contract(s),
letter(s), email(s) or other data sources where you explicitly agree to
allow Lands Improvement Holdings  or their associated third parties such
as Breheny to close the road between 8 am till 5 pm numerous times this
year (2018).”

 

Your request for information has been considered under the Environmental
Information Regulations 2004. I can confirm that Hertfordshire County
Council does not hold any agreements, contracts, letters emails or other
data sources that explicitly agree to allow Lands Improvement Holdings or
their associated third parties to close Dinant link road between 8am and
5pm numerous times this year. To advise and assist please see the attached
a pdf which contains all correspondence relating to the closure of Dinant
link road, this also includes the applications to close the road between
the hours of 8pm and 5am. Apologies for not including this information in
the response to your original request EIR/ENV/10/18/16407.

 

Please note that we have redacted some contents of the attachment under
the following exemption:

 

Regulation 13 (1) - Personal Data

 

This exception applies because you have requested information that
contains data that relates to third party individuals.

 

The public interest arguments for releasing this information are as
follows:

 

• To release the information would show accountability for the actions of
the Council and its officers

 

The public interest arguments for withholding the information are as
follows:

 

• That the public interest in withholding the information outweighs the
public interest in disclosing it.

• Disclosure would be an unfair and unwarranted interference with the
individual’s privacy

 

On balance we feel the public interest is better served by withholding
this information.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me, quoting
the reference number on this correspondence. To find out more about
Freedom of Information, please visit

If you are unhappy with the way the County Council has handled your
request for information you may request an internal review of the request.
This will be carried out by a member of the County Council Legal Services
Team, who has had no prior involvement with the request. Requests for an
internal review should be sent to the Information Governance Unit at the
address above (within 2 months of this correspondence) and should detail
in writing your grounds of appeal.

                    

If you are unhappy with the outcome of the internal review you are
entitled to ask the Information Commissioner to investigate your
complaint. You should write to: FOI/EIR Complaints Resolution, Information
Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9

Dear Hertfordshire County Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Hertfordshire County Council's handling of my FOI request 'High Leigh Garden Village Dinant Link Road'.

I am concerned by the level of redaction of information that you deem 'personal'. I contest that the emails of all Hertfordshire Council employees are in fact public information and must be released.

Could you additionally state if any documents were redacted in their entirety for the correspondence?

I contest any redaction of documents in their entirety and request that all and any correspondence is provided. Please could you state how many documents, emails or other correspondence have been redacted from this FOI request?

I would also request that you provide the minuets of any meetings regarding this. Though I understand I did not explicitly request minuets of meetings I believe it would fall into the scope of this request.

You may merge this request with: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/l...

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/h...

Yours faithfully,

Thomas Coward
