Dear Info PeopleSS,

I am interested in how your Youth Offending Team is managed by the strategic partnership, and held to account for it's service responsibilities.

I assume the North Lincolnshire board met about 6 times during the request period, and for each meeting there will be minutes and some agenda papers. Other councils have supplied between 20 and 40 documents for their strategic partnership. I do not think that is excessive or unreasonable, because the documents are small, easily-sent electronic files.

If North Lincolnshire has difficulty with this for some reason, I would not mind if some repetitive documents were excluded. For example if there are large performance or budget reports for every board meeting, you just can just supply 2 or 3 examples of each report type.

I do wish to see all board minutes please, and all reports relating to serious incidents or public protection investigations. I understand that identifying details must be removed, but I wish to study how the strategic partnership manages it's public responsibilities.

kind regards,

Benny Faversham

Dear Info PeopleSS,

You are in breach of Section 10(1) Freedom of Information Act 2000:

‘a public authority must comply with section 1(1) promptly and in any event not later that the twentieth working day following the date of receipt.’

Please provide the requested documents.

Kind Regards,

Benny Faversham
