Land and lease disposals to the Flanagan's and their associated companies.

Mr M Dean made this Freedom of Information request to Liverpool City Council

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Liverpool City Council,

1) Please provide a full list of all the sites that LCC have disposed of to the Flanagan's and their associated companies, as the Council's response to Mr Thomas (FOI 5221718) seems to be missing some?

2) Please provide the price the Flanagan's have paid for each of these sites in GBP (£)?

3) How many of these sites/units have the Council or their subsidiaries (i.e. Foundation Homes) bought back off the Flanagan's and their associated companies (please list)?

4) Please list the full cost (in GBP) of buying each of these sites back?

5) Please explain the details of the arrangement between the Flanagan's, LCC, King and Unite over the PFI School in Speke?

Yours faithfully,

Mr M Dean

Liverpool City Council

Dear Liverpool City Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Liverpool City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Land and lease disposals to the Flanagan's and their associated companies.'. This is based on the following

1. The information provided does not contain a full list of all disposals to the Flanagan's and their associated companies.

2. The the information of the prices paid has not been submitted to the Land Registry and you have failed to provide them.

3. Many of the title numbers given do not relate to sites on the Land Registry.

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

Yours faithfully,

Mr M Dean

This should be sent to the Information Commissioner for appeal, not just because the information provided is incomplete, but:

ICO guidance states:

"There will be some cases where the fact that there is a charge for
information may mean that it is not reasonably accessible to the
applicant. For instance, a public authority may be asked for
information contained in its annual report. It is unlikely to be
reasonable to require the applicant to purchase a copy of the report
if the request is only for a small amount of the information contained
in it."

Dear Information Requests,

The FOI request submitted on 29th July 2020 (see link below) asked for the sale value of Land (Title MS629628) sold to FBM (UK) LIMITED.
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/w...

Why is it that title number MS629628 was not included on the original list of disposals given to me?

Please remember to state the price this asset was sold for, as it does not appear on the Land Registry documents.

Yours sincerely,

Mr M Dean

Dear Information Requests,

It has now been 40 days since my request for an internal review, with no response forthcoming.

Failure to provide a response by tomorrow will result in the matter being referred to the ICO, along with supporting evidence for the disposals missing from your list.

Yours sincerely,

Mr M Dean
