Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50087884
  • Date: 16 May 2006
  • Public Authority: Oswestry Borough Council
  • Summary: The complainant requested details of how much money the Council had set aside from right to buy sales between 1979 and 1997, and also wanted to know whether this money would be used to fund a new leisure centre in the borough. The council responded by stating it did not hold information regarding right to buy sales from as far back as 1979, but provided the complainant with the figures for the years 1993/94 to 1997 as this was the oldest information available. Additionally the council explained the leisure centre was funded from various sources and it was unable to say how much of this was generated from right to buy sales. However, the complainant did not accept that the information regarding right to buy sales for the years prior to 1993/94 was not held and complained to the Commissioner. The Commissioner contacted the council, which demonstarted that the information would have been disposed of in line with their records retention policy.
