The complainant requested information about a specific planning enforcement case. The Council withheld the information requested under regulation 12(5)(b) of the EIR. During the course of the Commissioner’s investigation, as a result of the passage of time, the Council disclosed the information it originally withheld. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Council breached regulation 5(2) of the EIR as it provided the information outside the 20 working day time frame. The Commissioner also finds that the Council breached regulation 14(2) in failing to issue a refusal notice within the required timescale. The Commissioner does not require any steps to be taken.
