The complainant requested information relating to pre-application advice regarding a specified property. The London Borough of Croydon provided most of the requested information and withheld some information in reliance on the exception at regulation 13 of the EIR (third party personal data). Following an internal review the Council sought to rely on regulation 12(4)(b) on the basis that the request was manifestly unreasonable. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Council wrongly applied regulation 12(4)(b) to the request. However she also finds that the Council was entitled to rely on regulation 13 in respect of the withheld information. The Commissioner does not require any steps to be taken.
