Dear Hedon Town Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Hedon Town Council's handling of my FOI request 'Public land'.

You have acknowledged elsigate/Ivy lane has been sold
Please answer questions 3 and 4 honestly to prevent the involvement of the information commission.
This is a legal requirement.

[ GIVE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR COMPLAINT HERE ]

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,

Mr K Hurd

Hedon Town Council

Dear Mr Hurd

I did not say that Elsiegate had been sold. I said that the land had been
administered by a charity. When the charity folded the land was passed on
to the Town Council by the charity to look after. No money changed hands
and the land is still looked after by the Town Council. My answer to
questions 3 and 4 stand.

As requested, an internal review of the handling of your FOI request will be
undertaken; this will be carried out by members of the Council.
