Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50280316
  • Date: 19 April 2010
  • Public Authority: Clydach Community Council
  • Summary: The complainant contacted Clydach Community Council on 10 November 2008 to request financial information such as the Council’s accounts for the last six years and its expected expenditure profile for 2008/09. The complainant also asked for a list of Councillors for his ward. On 9 March and 1 July 2009, the complainant chased a response to his request and added to it. The complainant restated his request on 12 October 2009. To date the complainant has received no substantive response. The Commissioner therefore finds the public authority to be in breach of sections 1(1) and 10(1) of the Act and instructs it to provide a substantive response or issue a valid refusal notice in accordance with section 17 of the Act. The Commissioner also highlighted the need for the Council to consider the provisions of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 if appropriate.
