Dear, Mr Butler

 

Re: Environmental Information Regulations 2004

 

Reference No: 383727

 

Thank you for your recent request. Please find below your questions and
our responses.

 

Please provide copies of the following documentation held by Lewisham
Council pertaining to proposals to regeneration or refurbish of Bampton
estate dated from 12th November 2015 to the present:

a) Any and all surveys relating to the the properties on Bampton estate
that are in the possession of the Council.

b) Any information (whether contained in emails, letters, minutes or
reports or otherwise) which relate to Housing Led Regeneration
Opportunities of Bampton estate.

 

A)   The Council is not in possession of any surveys relating to the
properties on Bampton estate dated from 12^th November 2015 to the
present.

B)   With regards to Emails we apply Regulation 12(4)(e) of the
Environmental Information Regulations 2004, ‘disclosure of internal
communications’, to your request.

 

For further information on the Information Commissioner's Office guidance
on the application of Regulation 12 exemptions, please access the
following link to their public website:

 

[2]https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...

 

Regulation 12(4)(e) states:

(4) For the purposes of paragraph (1)(a), a public authority may refuse to
disclose information to the extent that - 

(e) the request involves the disclosure of internal communications.

 

The information we hold is considered internal communications because it
is communications between Lewisham Council Officers.

 

With regards to letters  - Please find attached letters dated from 12^th
November 2015 to the present date which were sent to residents on the
Bampton Estate by LB Lewisham and London and Quadrant.

 

Minutes and reports or other

 

We apply Regulation 12(4)(d) of the Environmental Information Regulations
2004, ‘incomplete material’, to your request.

 

For further information on the Information Commissioner's Office guidance
on the application of Regulation 12 exemptions, please access the
following link to their public website:

 

[3]https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio...

 

Regulation 12(4)(d) states:

(4) For the purposes of paragraph (1)(a), a public authority may refuse to
disclose information to the extent that - 

(d) the request relates to material which is still in the course of
completion, to unfinished documents or to incomplete data;

 

We also  consider that the public interest test favours the application of
this regulation because the Council is not yet in a position to put
forward proposals for consultation regarding the future of the Bampton
estate. To provide the requested information at this stage could lead to
misinterpretation as not all proposals may ultimately be pursued. When the
Council is in a position to confirm proposals, these will be put forward
to residents.

 

 

We hope you will find this information helpful.
