The complainant has requested information regarding fire safety measures of a specified housing development. The Commissioner’s decision is that the information is environmental and the appropriate legislation is the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR). The Commissioner also finds that the London Borough of Tower Hamlets (the council) is not entitled to rely on regulations 12(5)(b) or 12(5)(f) to withhold the requested fire safety reports. The Commissioner requires the public authority to disclose the PRP and Tri-Fire reports. The public authority must take these steps within 35 calendar days of the date of this decision notice. Failure to comply may result in the Commissioner making written certification of this fact to the High Court pursuant to section 54 of the Act and may be dealt with as a contempt of court.
