Hi Adrian

If possible, would you be able to at least send over some of the information I requested, and then send over the rest next week when ready?

I've had an FOI officer from Westminster do this not long ago. It was more helpful than not getting any of the requested info until a later date.

Yours sincerely,

Owen Sheppard

I am currently out of the office until Monday 12th August 2019. If the

Hi Owen,
I’ve run the reports from our database but need to check through all of
the information before I send it. Unfortunately I ran out of time to do
this yesterday. I’m not in the office today but can get these over to you
on Monday ?
Kind regards

Dear Overton Adrian: H&F,

Thanks for these Adrian.

Could I ask, as an additional request, if you could provide me with minutes for those hearings where you have listed them as available?

Ideally I was looking for decision notices, but (just to confirm) are you telling me that 2009/01345/LAPRC is the only hearing for which you could find a decision notice?

Yours sincerely,

Owen Sheppard

Overton Adrian: H&F, Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council

Dear Owen,

Unfortunately there is no decision letter or minutes available for 2005/03551/LAPRTV (648 King's Road).

In the vast majority of cases the decision letter is available , in three cases the minutes have been attached as a substitute where the decision letter could not be found.

Can I confirm that you would also like the minutes of a hearing where the decision letter has already been provided ?

Kind regards

Adrian

Hi Adrian

Sorry but it looks like you only attached one of the decision notices in your previous response.

But yes just to confirm, could you please provide me with all the decision notices that are available, and could you also provide me with minutes for all those hearings where a there is not an associated decision notice.

Yours sincerely,

Owen Sheppard

Overton Adrian: H&F, Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council

Dear Owen,

I have checked the message and all the decision letters and minutes were included as they should have been. However they were all included in one attachment which was very large (24mb ) . It may take a while to see the whole document when you open it depending on your connection.

Let me know if it's still not working and I will try and break down the attachment into smaller chunks.

Kind regards

Hi Adrian

I see now, they're all in that 24mb document.

But could I also request the minutes for the hearings for which the decision notices weren't available?

Many thanks,

Owen Sheppard

Overton Adrian: H&F, Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council

Hi Owen ,

Within that document minutes have been provided where decision letters are not available. There is only one hearing where neither are available (2005/03551/LAPRTV - 648 King's Road).

I hope that helps.
