Minutes of T.A. Meetings

Michael Dean made this Freedom of Information request to Leeds City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was refused by Leeds City Council.

Dear Leeds City Council,
I have had difficulty in obtaining copies of minutes of committee meetings Wykebeck valley tenants association. I made a similar request in January 2013,which was partially successful. I received minutes by e-mail until July of this year, then they stopped. I contacted the chair(Mrs Moon)on several occasions but got no reply. I tried to raise the matter at the agm in October of this year. The Chair refused answer. The Area Manager and Deputy were present at this meeting .I understand that Housing had agreed to put minutes on line but I can find no record of them. All members including housing staff are e-mailed copies of minutes(as I used to be). I feel that members of a recognised tenants association should be supplied with minutes of all meetings. As the Chair refuses to deal with matter I fat as copies are supplied to housing staff they should be able to assist with this matter

Yours faithfully,

Michael Dean

Dear Mr Dean

 

The Wykebeck Valley Tenants and Residents Association is a constituted
group and the minutes are their responsibility.  However the AGM minutes
are a different matter.  The established protocol is that the minutes from
the AGM are circulated with the papers for the next years AGM and are
signed off as a correct record at that point.   Only Area Panels minutes
are published on the website.

 

If you are not happy with how your request for information has been
handled, you can contact us  to make a formal complaint.  Due to the
nature of your complaint, we will acknowledge this at stage two of our
Complaints and Feedback Procedure.  If you are still not happy, you can
then apply to the Information Commissioner for a decision.  You can make a
complaint by either calling 0113 2476681, e-mail us at:
[1][email address],  or write to us at the following
address (no stamp is needed): Freepost RRJX-YRTK-TACE, Housing Leeds,
Leeds, LS7 3YY.
