Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FER0118853
  • Date: 19 March 2008
  • Public Authority: Sutton and East Surrey Water plc
  • Summary: The complainant requested information in relation to works carried out by the public authority. The public authority initially responded by stating that it did not believe the EIR applied. Following the Commissioner’s intervention, the public authority accepted that the EIR did apply to this request and released most of the information to the complainant. The public authority also informed the complainant that some of the information was not held and that it was withholding other information by applying regulation 13 (personal data). The Commissioner upheld the application of Regulation 13 but found that the public authority had responded later than 20 working days after receipt of the request. The Commissioner also found that the public authority had breached the EIR by failing to offer the complainant an internal review of the request.
