Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FER01020787
  • Date: 13 September 2006
  • Public Authority: Westminster City Council
  • Summary: On 6 September 2005 the complainant requested, under the Freedom of Information Act, information related to a possible change in planning use in Westminster’s Dolphin Square and the Dolphin Square Hotel. The public authority did not respond to the request until 9 January 2006. Whilst the public authority dealt with the request under the Freedom of Information Act, the Commissioner is of the opinion that the information was of a predominantly environmental nature and that the request should have been dealt with under the Environmental Information Regulations. Consequently the Commissioner finds that, in dealing with the request, the public authority breached regulation 5.(2) of the Environmental Information Regulations.
