2. Why did the Council sell this land a Park Street (MS638711) to the Flanagan's for a £1 then by it back though Foundation Homes?

3. Why did the Council not just issue a contract to a developer to build houses on the site?

5. What was the role of Mr Kitts in this?

6. Did the Flanagan's pay S106 money for this application?

7. If the answer is no to question 6, can Andy Barr please provide a copy of the viability notice as mentioned in the reports?

This should be sent to the Information Commissioner for appeal, not just because it is an incomplete response but:

ICO guidance states:

"There will be some cases where the fact that there is a charge for
information may mean that it is not reasonably accessible to the
applicant. For instance, a public authority may be asked for
information contained in its annual report. It is unlikely to be
reasonable to require the applicant to purchase a copy of the report
if the request is only for a small amount of the information contained
in it."
