The complainant made a series of requests relating to items listed on the agendas of Parish Council meetings. The Commissioner’s decision is that all four requests were vexatious and therefore Potto Parish Council was entitled to rely on section 14 of the FOIA to refuse them. However it failed to issue its refusal notices, relying on section 14, within 20 working days and thus breached section 17(5) of the FOIA in respect of each request. The Commissioner does not require any further steps.
