Dear Ms Sole

 

Thank you for your request for information made under the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA) 2000, relating to Manston Airport. I am pleased to
provide the response below:

 

You asked us to provide information on “Brochure on Manston Airport”.

 

This document was produced to make clear for all to see Kent County
Council’s substantial and consistent efforts to support Manston and
generate growth and economic prosperity in East Kent.  The production of
the document was led and co-ordinated by Paul Carter, Leader of the
Council, who spent considerable time in shaping and forming the document
and pulling together the evidence.  The Director of Economic Development
(David Smith), two officers in the Communications Team (Lucy Majin and
John Stibbs), and an officer in the Leader’s Office (Sarah Nurden)
provided the Leader with information. The document was created in-house
and, other than the cost of printing one copy for each County Councillor,
there was no printing or distribution cost as the document was circulated
electronically to external parties.

 

You also asked for evidence that this document was approved for
publication.

 

The Leader of the Council gave a presentation of the document (whose cover
sheet makes clear that it is a Position Statement rather than a Policy
Statement) to the Growth and Economic Development Cabinet Committee on
Tuesday 14^th April 2015 and you can access the full proceedings through
the Kent County Council website at
[1]https://democracy.kent.gov.uk/ieListDocu...  

 

The document states a position, not a policy.

 

If you are unhappy with this response, and believe KCC has not complied
with legislation, please ask for a review by following our complaints
process; details can be found at this link
[2]http://www.kent.gov.uk/about-the-council...
on our website. Please quote reference FOI/16/1413.

 

If you still remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you can
appeal to the Information Commissioner, who oversees compliance with the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. Details of what you need to do, should
you wish to pursue this course of action, are available from the
Information Commissioner’s website [3]http://www.ico.org.uk/concerns.

 

Yours sincerely
