Dear Sir/Madam


Response under the Freedom of Information Act (2000) - Rochdale Riverside
Phase 1


Thank you for your Freedom of Information Request regarding the Rochdale
Riverside development in Rochdale town centre, which was received on 2^nd
July 2018.


Firstly, I am writing to advise you that, following a search of our
electronic records, I have established that only part of the information
you requested is held by the Authority.  The information held by the
Authority is as follows

Telephone: 0161 947 3960

Secondly, I can confirm that we do hold some of the information you have
requested, however this information is already reasonable accessible
elsewhere, therefore we are exempting this part of your request under
Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act. Section 21 of the Freedom of
Information Act recognises the many ways which Public Authorities strive
to make information accessible to the public. Therefore, any requests
where the information is reasonably accessible elsewhere, we are able to
exempt this information under Section 21 and signpost the requester to
where this information can be accessed.  I can confirm therefore that you
are able to access some information about the project consultants
(including planning advisors, transport consultants, landscape architects
etc) under planning application 16/01383/HYBR on the Council’s website at


Finally, the Authority does not hold a list of all subcontractors,
suppliers and consultants & telephone numbers.  As not all the information
is held by the Authority, you may wish to contact Genr8 Developments
directly (their contact details are set out above).


We feel that we have fulfilled your Freedom of Information request. 
However, please see the details on our website if you are unhappy with the
service you have received in relation to your request, wish to make a
complaint or appeal against any decision we have made in response to your
