Dear WBC FOI,
If you are refusing to send me the details because they are going to be published, please tell when this will be and how. All other councils I have checked publish their Stage Es after their PPS, so I cannot understand WBC's reluctance.
If I don't hear back I'll be obliged to ask for an internal review.
Yours sincerely,
John Stewart

Dear West Berkshire Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of West Berkshire Council's handling of my FOI request 'Playing Pitch Strategy Stage E Review'.

You have have cited section 22 and also not replied to my last request for a publication date. This section has 20 refusal reasons and you have not told me which and that leads me to believe you have conveniently used this blanket excuse to fob me off without any proper investigation or explanation.

As far I know, this Stage E report was published last September 2022 and as its parent PPS is public, so it follows logically that this related review document should also be publicly available (other councils I have checked publish theirs). This report can't be be a matter of national security (it's about local playing fields), so there must be some more detailed information you can send me.

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

Thank you in anticipation.

Yours faithfully,
John Stewart

Dear Zarah/FOI team,
Thank you for sending the PDF report.
On page 107 it refers to "Appendices" and "See separate files", but these are missing.
Please can you send them to complete the report and make sense of its findings?
Yours sincerely,
John Stewart

Dear FOI team,
Please send me the appendices ASAP, and the requested correspondence.
I still require an internal review as you've only sent me part of what I asked for without explanation and it's long overdue.
