Dear Tendring District Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Tendring District Council's handling of my FOI request 'Planning Department Hierarchy'.

The response received gave a chart identifying the reporting lines in the department but did not identify individuals names on that chart. I require the names of the individual planning officers, and their line supervisors/managers to be identified. This is so that individuals who influence planning decisions for particular applications can be ascertained in an open and transparent manner.

I believe that this request is in the public interest and so that even though personal information may be divulged this would not be an acceptable reason for refusal.

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

Yours faithfully,

Richard Everett

Corporate Information Manager, Tendring District Council

Dear Mr Everett,

 

Further to your request for an internal review, which was received
18/11/19, please see attached the review decision of your FOI and a

service.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to pass on the Council’s apologies
for the delay in supplying this information to you.  

 

I hope this information is of assistance to you. If you are not content
with the outcome of the internal review you have the right to apply

Commissioner can be contacted at:
