Your email was received on 8 April 2021 and has been passed to the
Information Governance Team as we are responsible for responding to
requests for information held by Sport England.

Dear Mr Cheshire

 

I write further to your request below for information. We have now
considered your request and I have set out our response below.

 

Please find attached  documents containing the information you have
requested.  As you can see, we have redacted the personal information in
the documents attached. The names, images and direct email addresses of
our stakeholders constitute personal data as defined by the Data
Protection Act 2018. They have a reasonable expectation of privacy and
would not expect us to make information about their lives public. As such,
disclosure of this information would be neither fair nor lawful and in
direct contravention of the first data protection principle. We are
therefore refusing to disclose this information.

 

In addition to the attached information we also hold a copy of the
planning application for Low Hall Sports Ground, South Access Road,
Walthamstow Ref No: 203496. We will send these to you in a second email
following this one.

 

This completes our response to your information request.

 

As a public body, Sport England is subject to the terms of the
Environmental Information Regulations 2004 and this means you are entitled
to complain if you are unhappy with the way we have handled your
information request and/or ask us to review our decision.

 

If you would like to complain about the way we have handled your request
or ask for our decision to be reviewed please contact:
[1][Sport England request email] 

 

Please describe your original request, explain your grounds for
dissatisfaction and include an address for correspondence. All internal
reviews are carried out by a colleague who has not previously been
involved in the handling of your information request. We aim to complete
internal reviews within twenty working days.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of our Internal Review you have
the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner. Generally speaking
the Information Commissioner will not be able to consider an appeal unless
you have first exhausted the Internal Review procedure provided by Sport
England.

 

The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

 

The Information Commissioner’s Office

I hope that this satisfies your information request.
