By and large we are happy to offer open access but there are a few minimal exceptions:

  • We shall not post data relating to a negotiation until after that negotiation has been concluded – for example relating to a section 106 agreement. There may be some negotiation where it is in our interest to disclose nothing.
  • We shall not post data relating to our discussions with professionals whom we have instructed, although we shall post correspondence and documents relating to any discussion with any person instructed by SouthCambs.
  • We shall not publish any email or text message from a resident - no matter how supportive or vitriolic.

The story of our FoI requests after months of frustration resulting from staff failing to provide proper responses, we decided to accumulate all the information we thought we would need. That resulted in 25 questions, some of which were subdivided into more. We first submitted these to the Council in February 2019. Despite the ICO giving the Council a second chance, and a third chance and a fourth chance many of the replies were fudged and a few completely refused. The ultimate report of the ICO accepted that the Council had failed. What we do next remains to be decided. [Link to: R109]
