Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50121687
  • Date: 10 September 2008
  • Public Authority: The Broads Authority
  • Summary: The complainant requested the Council to release the following information for all vessels registered for use on the Broads; the name and registration of each vessel, its make and model, type or class, dimensions, propulsion method and horsepower. The Council refused the request citing sections 31(1)(a) and 41(1) of the Act. Following the Commissioner’s intervention the authority confirmed that it was now willing to disclose the name and registration number of each vessel. However, it remained of the view that the remaining information was exempt from disclosure under the exemptions it previously cited. The Commissioner has considered the remaining information and concluded that sections 31(1)(a) and 41(1) of the Act do not apply in this case. He has therefore requested the authority to disclose the requested information in its entirety to the complainant within 35 days of this Notice.
