FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT/ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION REGULATIONS REQUEST
PLANNING APPLICATIONS 3/20/1155/FUL AND 3/20/1154/FUL
THE ROSE AND CROWN PUBLIC HOUSE, 10 BENINGTON ROAD, ASTON, HERTS SG2 7DX
We act for Annakut Limited in connection with their planning applications referenced 3/20/1155/FUL and 3/20/1154/FUL (the “Applications”) for development at 10 Bennington Road, Aston. The Applications are currently pending determination by the Council.
We understand that the Council has received objections to the Applications from Aston Parish Council and persons connected to the Parish Council despite our client having sought to engage with them to overcome concerns that they have previously raised.
Our client is therefore concerned to understand what has been said against their proposals and how it has been communicated both to and within the Council in order that they can respond appropriately.
Please therefore accept this letter as a freedom of information request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and Environmental Information Regulations 2004 for copies of any of the information set out below that the Council hold in connection with the Applications:
Any “communication” (which is to say, any attendance note, written correspondence, e-mail, facsimile, letter, memorandum, note, report, record of telephone conversation, text message or other form of electronic communication) between any of the following parties in connection with the Applications:
1. Aston Parish Council and the Council;
2. Any individual member of Aston Parish Council and the Council;
3. Councillor Tony Stowe (member for Datchworth & Aston) and any planning officer of the Council;
4. The case officer for the Applications and senior planning officers pertaining to any communication from the Aston Parish Council, any individual member of Aston Parish Council and/or Councillor Tony Stowe.
