Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50092601
  • Date: 27 November 2006
  • Public Authority: Peterborough City Council
  • Summary: The complainant requested the public authority to provide certain street name and area details for children who lived furthest away from a particular college and who had been admitted to that college in accordance with the college’s admission criteria. The public authority whilst providing the details of the relevant areas refused to provide details of the street names relying upon an exemption under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act (“section 40(2)”) indicating that the information constituted personal information in respect of which there was an absolute exemption against disclosure. The Commissioner considered the papers in the case and corresponded with both parties as a result of which he finds that the public authority incorrectly applied the section 40(2) exemption.
