Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50232757
  • Date: 21 September 2009
  • Public Authority: Vale of Glamorgan Council
  • Summary: The complainant requested information from the Vale of Glamorgan Council (‘the Council’) regarding the contractual arrangements it had entered into with a third party in relation to the sale of a particular piece of land. The Council considered the complainant had not made a valid information request and failed to confirm or deny whether it held information relevant to the request, or provide any information, where it was not exempt from disclosure. The Council has not provided an appropriate response to the request, despite the intervention of the Commissioner. The Commissioner considers that the information requested, if held, would be environmental information and should have been considered under the EIR. In failing to consider the request in accordance with the provisions of the EIR, the Council has breached regulation 5(2) of the EIR. The Commissioner requires the Council to either provide the information requested or issue a valid refusal notice that complies with regulation 14 of the EIR within 35 days of the date of this notice.
