Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50150536
  • Date: 2 January 2008
  • Public Authority: Hampshire County Council
  • Summary: The complainant asked the council for information concerning the operations and finances of the River Hamble Harbour Authority. The council withheld the requested information under s21 (accessible by other means), s12 (appropriate limit), s40 (personal information) and s31 (law enforcement). The Commissioner found that the council was not entitled to rely on s12 to withhold the information. He found that the council incorrectly applied the exemptions at s21, s31 and s40 to the information. A proportion of the information is exempt under s40. The Commissioner decided that the requested information should be released to the complainant after redaction of third party personal data.
