Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50063318
  • Date: 29 March 2007
  • Public Authority: Bury Metropolitan Borough Council
  • Summary: A number of letters requesting information were sent by the complainant to Bury Metropolitan Council between January and April 2005. The request concerned material held about a dispute over a right of way claim, including legal advice relating to the claim, evidence considered as to its existence, ownership of a property and other internal information relating to this matter. In response, the council released some information, but chose to rely on a number of exemptions to withhold other documents. Sections 21, 36, 41, 42 and 43 were applied and in turn considered by the Commissioner. As a result of the Commissioner’s enquiries, the Decision Notice requires further information to be disclosed but does uphold the decision to withhold the majority of the information.
