Dear Ms Scott

 

Thank you for your email below in which you request information relating
to the London Plan examination in public regarding open spaces. Your email
was received on 12 August 2020 and has been passed to me as I am
responsible for responding to requests for information held by Sport
England. 

 

As a public body, Sport England is subject to the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004
and we will handle your request in accordance with their  terms. We will

consider the public interest; if this is necessary in your case I will
write to you again and explain why.

 

At this stage it is important to advise you that Sport England, just like
many other organisations and the nation generally, is dealing with the
severe impact of the coronavirus pandemic on human, physical and

I will be in touch again in due course and in any event not later than 10
September 2020. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me if I can

FOI, Sport England

Dear Ms Scott

 

Thank you for your email. I regret that we are still not yet in a position
to respond to your FOI request.

 

This is because we have recently identified that a significant number of
emails in the email account of a former member of staff may contain
information that falls within the scope of your request. The delay was
caused partly because it took us a while to gain access to the email
account of the former member of staff. We have now commenced our
consideration of these emails and anticipate that we should be able to
respond within the next five working days.

 

Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience that this delay may cause
you.

Dear Caroline

 

I write further to our emails below and your request for information. Once
again, please accept our apologies for the delay in responding to your
request.

 

We have considered your request and I am pleased to provide you with the
attached documents which contain the information that you have requested.
 Please note that there may be some duplication in the emails as we have
released all the information we hold about this matter.

 

As you can see we have redacted most of the personal information from the
documents as we consider this information to be exempt from disclosure
under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The names and
direct email addresses of our non-senior, non-public facing staff and
stakeholders constitutes personal data as defined by the Data Protection
Act 2018. Our staff have a reasonable expectation of privacy and would not
expect us to make information about their working lives public. As such,
disclosure of this information would be neither fair nor lawful and in
direct contravention of the first data protection principle. We are
therefore refusing to disclose this information.

 

This completes our response to your information request.

 

As a public body, Sport England is subject to the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and this means you are entitled to complain if you
are unhappy with the way we have handled your information request and/or
ask us to review our decision.

 

If you would like to complain about the way we have handled your request
or ask for our decision to be reviewed please contact:
[1][Sport England request email] 

 

Please describe your original request, explain your grounds for
dissatisfaction and include an address for correspondence. All internal
reviews are carried out by a colleague who has not previously been
involved in the handling of your information request. We aim to complete
internal reviews within twenty working days.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of our Internal Review you have
the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner. Generally speaking
the Information Commissioner will not be able to consider an appeal unless
you have first exhausted the Internal Review procedure provided by Sport
England.

 

The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office

Wycliffe House

Water Lane

Wilmslow

Cheshire

SK9 5AF

I hope that this satisfies your information request.
