Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

further to the appeal over ICO request to disclose Hoylake Golf Resort contract (EA/2017/0191) ending with First-tier Tribunal Judge Farrer QC, Wirral Council and ICO agreeing to partial disclosure, I shall be grateful if Council will disclose those parts of the Agreement to which it has given its agreement should be disclosed.

I specifically refer to the terms of the Appeal that was allowed saying under Para 3
'The following order, which reflects the terms set out at paragraph 3 of Annex A to this order, shall be substituted for the Commissioner’s order at paragraph 3 of the Decision Notice –

“The Tribunal requires Wirral Metropolitan Council to take the following steps to ensure compliance with the legislation –

Disclose the Amended Annotated Development Agreement at pages 256 – 351 of the Closed Bundle prepared for the appeal hearing, save the passages annotated in green and any marginal green notes, which may be withheld.

The Commissioner’s order at paragraph 2 of the Decision Notice stands.” '

Yours faithfully,

John H Hutchinson

Hi John Hutchinson,

The requirement of the consent order in that case was to disclose the partially redacted contract to myself (John Brace) who had requested it.

I was not a party tot the First-tier Tribunal case, because I had concerns (upheld at appeal) over First-tier Tribunal Judge John Farrer QC to make lawful decisions on costs in a previous case (EA/2016/0054) - see [2019] UKUT 305 (AAC) - https://www.gov.uk/administrative-appeal... . The costs application of MFRA that led to this appeal has recently been withdrawn.

I did apply to be a party in the First-tier Tribunal case about the contract (as the original requster) but First-tier Tribunal Judge John Farrer QC refused the request to add me as a party.

First-tier Tribunal Judge Farrer retired as a First-tier Tribunal Judge later in 2018 having reached the age of 75 years old.

However, after receiving what I did through the post by Wirral Council as a result of the consent order in the case, I did publish what I got it on my website, here is a link to it (published in February 2018) - https://johnbrace.com/whats-in-wirral-co... .

So I hope that is useful.
