Dear Chelmsford City Council,
Please can you send me a structure chart for Housing, Property and Regeneration to include job titles and contact names.
I am sending this email in response to your Freedom of Information Act
(2000) request reference IR 8277. Please use this reference in any
subsequent contact relating to this request.
Please see attached the Council structure charts, as requested.
Please note that we have not included contact names on the charts as this
would include junior level members of staff which is considered personal
information and would be exempt under Freedom of Information legislation.
Please see further details below:
Section 40 (part 2) Personal Information:
Personal data of any other person (third party data) is exempt under
section 40(2) if disclosure would breach one of the data protection
principles. This aspect of Section 40 is an Absolute Exemption and is
therefore not subject to the Public Interest Test. We believe that to
reveal junior officers details would be likely to breach the first
Principle of the Data Protection Act by unfairly contravening their right
to privacy and confidentiality, therefore we are unable to disclose this
I can however, confirm that details of senior officers are published on
the Council’s website and can be viewed here:
