Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50158501
  • Date: 23 December 2009
  • Public Authority: Department of Energy & Climate Change
  • Summary: The complainant requested information relating to a meeting which discussed high amplitude modulation of wind turbine noise. The public authority claimed that the information was exempt under section 36(2)(b) and section 36(2)(c) of the Act. In the event that the information fell within the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR), the public authority advised that regulation 12(4)(e) (internal communications) applied. The Commissioner is satisfied that the information requested is environmental information and should be considered under the EIR. However, the Commissioner finds that the information does not fall within the scope of regulation 12(4)(e) and therefore the exception is not engaged in relation to this information. DECC is required to disclose to the complainant the information withheld within 35 days from the date of this Notice.
