Dear J Smith,

 

Thank you for your request for information of 19^th November 2019 which
has been logged as RFI 1931

 

Your request meets the definition of environmental information and has
therefore been answered under the Environmental Information Regulations
2004. 

 

For the purposes of clarity your request is reproduced below.

 

Please can you send me all communications, planning comments ,emails
advice notes , time and date of any meetings and notes from those
meetings  etc between CWAC Planning officers and the Parkgate Society or
any of their officers or people representing them for the past year ie up

Response

 

Please find enclosed all correspondence and communications, to answer your
request as listed above

 

 

You will note some minor redaction has taken place. The requested
information includes details of personal data of Junior Council officer
and other 3^rd parties.

 

The Council claims the exception to disclosure in Regulation 12(3): the
information requested includes personal data of which the applicant is not
the data subject, the personal data shall not be disclosed otherwise than
in accordance with regulation 13.

 

The definition of personal data in taken from the Data Protection Act
(“DPA”) and General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) 2018.

 

ICO guidance states that if the information constitutes the personal data
of third parties, public authorities should consider whether disclosure
would breach the data protection principles. (In the case of special
category or criminal offence data, public authorities must also satisfy
one of the conditions listed in Article 9 of the GDPR.). Principle (a)
under Article 5 is deemed most applicable.

 

• When considering whether disclosure of information is a breach of
principle (a), a public authority should first consider whether disclosure
is lawful and then whether it is fair. The lawful basis that is most
likely to be relevant is legitimate interests under Article 6.1(f).

 

For further information regarding the exception to disclose of personal
data under Regulation 12 (3) and 13 EIR, please follow the below link to
the Information Commissioners Office website
