TVGs processed against Planning Inspectorate opinion

The request was successful.

Dear Milton Keynes Council,

Under the Freedom of Information Act I request the following information:

1. How many Town and Village Green (TVG) applications has this local authority (LA) dealt with since 19 July 2006. Or if this not possible to obtain then the best you can do, but please specify the period of the search.

2. Of these TVG applications returned in 1, for how many was the Planning Inspectorate's opinion that the TVG application was excluded? In other words that a trigger event had occurred with no closing event.

3. Of these TVG applications returned in 2, for how many did the processing of the TVG application continue, in other words the LA ignored the Planning Inspectorate's opinion that any TVG application was excluded.

4. For the TVG applications returned in 3, please supply details of location, LA decision on the application and any appeal details i.e. court reference and outcome.

Electronic versions of documents are acceptable and preferred.

Thanks

Yours faithfully,

Malcolm Reeves
