Wynyard Park visit by Cllr Chris Wells

Andrew McCulloch made this Freedom of Information request to Thanet District Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Thanet District Council,

On either 1st or 2nd July 2015, whilst in the north of England attending the AGM of the Local Government Association, Cllr Wells paid a visit to Wynyard Park in Co Durham. As he has stated that this was in the interests of impartiality regarding the pending CPO on the Manston Airport site, it must therefore be considered as official Council business and therefore subject to scrutiny under the FoIA. In view of this, I would be grateful for answers to the following questions.

1. Was Cllr Wells assisted by any other Members or Officers of Thanet District Council?

2. Who accompanied Cllr Wells during his tour of Wynyard Park?

3. With whom did Cllr Wells hold discussions during his visit?

4. Were any discussions minuted or were contemporaneous notes taken?

5. Accepting that some aspects of any such minutes or notes may be commercially sensitive, please include copies of such documents, redacted to the minimum necessary to maintain confidentiality.
