Marple planning

The request was refused by Tesco Stores Limited.

Dear Tesco Stores Limited,

Please could you furnish me with details of correspondence between Tesco, Turner and Townsend, Walsingham Planning, Cheadle & Marple Sixth Form College and the council (officers and elected officials) and within the council with regard to plans for a supermarket on the existing college site in Marple?

Furthermore, in light of the designation (by the local council) of the college side as residential use only, what reassurances have Tesco had concerning the use of the college campus land for commercial use ?

Yours faithfully,

Neil Corrie

Dear Tesco Stores Limited,

There appears to be some confusion here. Many other FOI requests have been handled via this approach, via this site http://www.whatdotheyknow.com

See http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/body/tesco for other examples which have been processed properly.

I would appreciate your assistance in ensuring this FOI gets the correct processing, so that the legal requirement of response within 28 days is met by yourselves.

I await your timely response.

Yours faithfully,

Neil Corrie

Dear Neil

Thank you for your email and for your patience in awaiting my response.

As my colleague advised, we are not able to supply the information you requested. Please let me explain why.

There can sometimes be confusion as to what queries fall under DPA and FOI, below are some key points to remember:

Tesco Stores Limited is not a public authority for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act 2000

Only requests for information about our pharmacy or opticians NHS services should be handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I appreciate that my response may not be satisfactory; however, I hope you can appreciate our position on this matter.

Kind Regards

James Harding
Tesco Customer Service

Dear Tesco Stores Limited,

As I understand that an opticians + pharmacy could be "in scope" for this development, I firmly believe it is subject to the government's FOI rules.

So could you please progress this FOI request nevertheless ?

Yours faithfully,

Neil Corrie

Dear Tesco Stores Limited,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Tesco Stores Limited's handling of my FOI request 'Marple planning'.

As I understand that an opticians + pharmacy could be "in scope" for this development, I firmly believe it is subject to the government's FOI rules.

So could you please progress this FOI request nevertheless ?
