Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50209357
  • Date: 7 May 2009
  • Public Authority: London Borough of Enfield
  • Summary: The complainant submitted a series of requests to the public authority which were mainly focused on housing issues relating to the ‘Edmonton Partnership Initiative’ regeneration project and as a consequence of the responses received, made several complaints to the Information Commissioner (“the Commissioner”). On 5 August 2006, the complainant requested information relating to a particular property and liability for communal areas. The complainant alleged that the public authority failed to respond to this request. Following intervention by the Commissioner, the public authority confirmed that it did not hold the information requested, a position which the Commissioner upheld. The Commissioner investigated and found that the public authority, in respect of some of the information, breached section 1(1)(a) and section 10(1) of the Act, and in respect of the remaining information, breached the Environmental Information Regulations 14(3)(a) and 14(2), for not initially informing the complainant that no recorded information was held but does not require the public authority to take any action. This decision notice is currently under appeal to the Information Tribunal.
