Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50077721
  • Date: 4 April 2006
  • Public Authority: Bristol City Council
  • Summary: The complainant made two different requests, on 22 February 2005 and the 23 March 2005 respectively, for information about street trees. The Council responded substantively to the first request on 5 April 2005 by providing information requested, but the second request was initially refused on the grounds that it was not framed in terms of the Freedom of Information Act. After the Commissioner's intervention the Council reconsidered the second request under the Act and provided the information on 23 November 2005. The Commissioner has therefore decided that in failing to respond substantively to the requests within 20 working days the Council were in breach of the Act. However, as the information has been provided no steps are required.
