The complainant has requested information associated with the Crossrail 2 project: a list of residential property in the 2015 Safeguarding zone and a Safeguarding map. Transport for London (TfL) has released the list of properties, directed the complainant to where particular maps are published and released the part of the Safeguarding map that includes the complainant’s property. TfL has withheld the full Safeguarding map (that is, the proposed revisions to the 2015 Safeguarding Directions for the entire length of the Crossrail 2 route) under regulation 12(5)(e) of the EIR (commercial or industrial information). The Commissioner’s decision is as follows: TfL is entitled to withhold the specific information the complainant has requested – the full Safeguarding map– under regulation 12(5)(e) of the EIR, and the public interest favours maintaining this exception. The Commissioner does not require TfL to take any remedial steps.
