North View Heights - redacted grant applications

J A Giggins made this Freedom of Information request to Homes England

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Homes and Communities Agency,

Please could you supply redacted copies of Sovereign Housing's grant applications for the redevelopment of North Veiw Heights in Hungerford, West Berkshire.

I understand from the internal review of a previous request that two applications have been made. One in June 2014 which was unsuccessful and another some time after October 22nd which was still under consideration as at the time I made that request.

I would also appreciate redacted copies/screen shots of the information held on your IMS system with regard to this property/redevelopment, and if possible within the time limits of the Acts, copies of any internal and external correspondence ( redacted as appropriate) relating to the bids. If you feel that the latter cannot be retrieved within the time limits of the Acts ( FOI & EIR) please provide me with advice & assistance to refine my request.

Please note that I am not at this stage requesting that you disclose exempt information, but I would be grateful if you would detail the relevant section of the EIR regulations/FOI Act to each redaction applied.

Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,

J A Giggins

Naomi McMaster,

Dear Naomi McMaster,

Naomi McMaster,

Dear Ms Giggins

I am writing to explain that, regretfully, the HCA needs a further 6 working days to investigate your request, meaning you will receive a response on or before 26 March 2015.. We are aware that this may cause you an inconvenience and offer our sincere apologies. We always strive to adhere to the 20 working day limit set in legislation but as you can imagine sometimes this is tested.

In this instance the delay has been caused partly due to reviewing the information at the HCA to determine if disclosure would cause harm if disclosed. A further delay has occurred due to our consultation with the third party as it relates to information they submit to us through the IMS system.

Kind Regards,
Naomi
