Good Morning


Thank you for your email.


Please find attached the Hoylake Golf Resort Brochure, which contains a
map of the land in question. Formal plans are yet to be submitted.


The chronology of the proposal can be found on the Council’s website at


Please note that, in accordance with Section 8 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000, in order for an enquiry to be a valid request under
the Act, a requester should provide their name for a request to be
processed (please see the guidance from the Information Commissioner’s
Office below):

What constitutes a real name?

We consider that a relatively informal approach is also appropriate in
this context. Therefore, title and/or first name with surname satisfies
the requirement for provision of a real name, as does the use by a female
applicant of her maiden name. The prime consideration is whether enough of
a person’s full name has been provided to give a reasonable indication of
that person’s identity.



Mr Arthur Thomas Roberts could satisfy Section 8(1)(b) of the FOIA by
stating his name in a request for information as “Arthur Roberts”, “A. T.
Roberts”, or “Mr Roberts”, but not by stating his name as “Arthur” or


In most cases, it will be reasonable for a real name to comprise a name by
which the person making the request is widely known and/or is regularly
used by that person and which is not an obvious pseudonym or fictitious


Kind regards,


Sent on behalf of
