The complainant has requested information with regards to a public footpath that crosses farmland. Warwickshire County Council (the council) provided the information but withheld some under regulation 12(5)(b) of the EIR – Course of Justice and 12(4)(e) of the EIR – Internal Communications. During the Commissioner’s investigations, the council no longer sought to rely on regulation 12(4)(e) of the EIR and provided the information that was previously withheld under that exception. It maintained its reliance on regulation 12(5)(b) of the EIR to the other withheld information. The Commissioner’s decision is that regulation 12(5)(b) of the EIR is engaged. The Commissioner does not require the council to take any steps.
