Dear Cheshire East Council,

Please forward a full and comprehensive list of the names and interests of council officers as follows:

The Chief Executive, his direct reports and the direct reports of these senior officers. Please include the heads of department and those such as senior planning officer. Anyone who has delegated authority from members should also be declared.

Please provide any and all personal interests they have, such as ownership of property, family associations, business interests, shareholdings and membership of organisations that may conflict with their decision-making role.

As a second and Independent request, please make the list retrospective for the last 5 years, in order that the public can examine the decisions made, the officers involved and check against the list of interests at that particular time. Any conflict can then be highlighted and acted upon as required, in the public interest,

Please note, there is already significant caselaw surrounding FOI requests of this nature, and i would advise you to refer to Greenwood v ICO (EA/2011/0131 & 0137), and the outcome of other appeals to the ICO's office before making a decision, such that we can come to a timel conclusion, (https://ico.org.uk/media/action-weve-tak...
