Dear Milton Keynes Council,

In a response to a FOI request in 2006 (see https://mkdsa.org.uk/2006%20June%2006%20...), Milton Keynes Council stated that they signed an agreement with Inter MK and other partners that would require a restriction to be registered against the Title to the Stadium requiring the freehold interest in the Stadium to be transferred to the Council for a nominal £1 consideration should Pyramid 6 football cease to be played at the stadium for a continuous period of two years.

Please could you confirm if that Agreement was followed through with a restriction on the Title to the Stadium to that effect and, if so, provide further details of Milton Keynes Council’s interest in the freehold of the Stadium (e.g. the legal text of the restriction on the Title).

Yours faithfully,

Brad Common

Dear Tracey,

Thanks for your reply.

Contrary to your letter, the information I sought is not included on the land title documentation held by the Land Registry regarding the specific restriction referred to relating to Pyramid 6 football.

The title documentation refers to the existence of a restriction imposed when when the land was transferred from The Council of The Borough of Milton Keynes to Stadium MK Limited on 15 August 2008 as part of a Schedule to the Transfer as well as several subsequent Deeds of Variation but does not specify what the restriction concerns.

Therefore, the reasons stated in the refusal notice are invalid - the information being sought is not accessible by other means.

Please could you supply a copy of:
* The Transfer of the land from MKC to SMK dated 15 August 2008 and the Schedule to it.
* Any subsequent Deeds of Variation and Release amending the 15 August 2008 Transfer and its Schedule, including those made on 18 November 2010, 7 November 2011, 28 June 2013, 5 September 2013 and 23 April 2015.

Yours sincerely,
Brad

Rath, Tracey, Milton Keynes Council

Dear Milton Keynes Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Milton Keynes Council's handling of my FOI request 'Milton Keynes Council interest in the Stadium MK Freehold'.

The request was made on the 5 September and was refused due to an incorrect assertion that the information was publicly available on 12 September. I brought this to your attention on the same day and was told the request would be passed on to others at MK Council. Since then I have heard nothing and it is now 40 working days since the request was made.

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

Yours faithfully,
Editor, The View from Bradwell Common

Freedom of Information Act, Milton Keynes Council

Dear Requestor

Following the advice of the ICO I understand that your original request is invalid as in order for a request to be valid, section 8(1)(b) of the FOIA requires that a requester must provide their name. In the case of this request the name used is a pseudonym which does not satisfy the requirements of section 8(1)(b), the request is therefore invalid.

Your request for an internal review will therefore not be processed.

Best Regards
Freedom of Information Team
