Dear Northamptonshire County Council
Request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Academies Act 2010, please provide me with an electronic version of the Asbestos Register, Asbestos survey and Asbestos Management Plan for:
Lumbertubs Primary School (Tonmead Road)
This school has been an Academy in the Bourton Meadows Trust since September 2018. Prior to that Lumbertubs Primary School was an Academy in the Collaborative Academies Trust.
Although Lumbertubs Primary School is an Academy there appears to be confusion about who can provide the required asbestos information. The Bourton Meadows Trust state that Lumbertubs Primary School is leased from Northamptonshire County Council on a 125 year lease. Also, the school is a PFI school which means all building and grounds maintenance issues are handled by the PFI contractor which is Amey. The Bourton Meadows Trust does not have the required information about the asbestos in the school and have suggested that I contacted Northamptonshire County Council.
If Northamptonshire County Council does not have the information I would be grateful if my Freedom of Information request could be passed on to Amey or whoever can provide this information.
I understand that I am entitled to a response within 20 working days of your receipt of this request. Some parts of the request may be easier to answer than others. Should this be the case, I request that you release information as soon as it becomes available.
If my request is denied in whole or in part, I ask that you justify all deletions by reference to specific exemptions of the Act. I will also expect you to release all non-exempt material. I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to charge excessive fees.
If you require any clarification, please contact me in accordance with your duty under Section 16 to provide advice and assistance if you find any aspect of this FOI request problematic.
Please acknowledge receipt of this request. I look forward to receiving the information in the near future.
