Levelling Up Fund bid

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Medway Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Our Ref: DocumentOwner\MFOI-018721\DocumentRef

Dear Medway Council,

Please provide:

- the recent levelling up fund bid;

- whether external subsidy control advice was obtained, name of advisers and cost.

Your FOI unit may wish to see how Portsmouth CC recently responded to a very similar request.

Yours faithfully,
Augustus Beeby

Dear Augustus Beeby,

 

We can advise that Medway Council considers your request to be a repeat
request for information in terms of section 14(2) of FOIA. Section 14(2)
of the Act provides that the Council is not obliged to comply with a
request for information that is identical or substantially similar unless
there has been a reasonable period of time between the making of the
request complied with and the making of the subsequent request.

The Council is of the view that you have already requested this
information on 24^th January 2022. The Council provided you with a
response to your request on 1st April 2022 (Our Ref: MFOI-018721). This
request is now under an Internal Review, therefore, this FOI will not be
considered as your previous request is under an Internal Review which is
due on the 10^th May.

Yours sincerely

I have submitted a request with reduced scope so it cannot be plausibly argued that the information sought falls within section 43 of the Act. This is in line with the Council’s statements in its response to my request dated 24 January 2022.

Kindly process this in line with the Act.
