GBC FoI Request 25/5/2016 Ref 10014790 & 10014962 (reminder)

I would also like to see all documents etc. between Taylor Wimpey (South West Thames) Ltd   and Councillors or Officers of Guildford Borough Council which relate to the construction of a school on Strategic Site 46 Normandy/Flexford

A.    The information is held by Surrey County Council on this occasion

Further query 9/6/16

With regard to question 2, I cannot understand why there are no documents etc. between Taylor Wimpey (South West Thames) Ltd   and Councillors or Officers of Guildford Borough Council which relate to the construction of a school on Strategic Site 46 Normandy/Flexford, as the school is a key plank in the draft Plan and is the basis to over-ride planning guidelines on this site and build 1,100 homes. I cannot accept, given the importance of the school within the Local Plan, that there have not been extensive talks between GBC and Taylor Wimpey.

I wish to object strongly to your claim that there are no documents held by GBC  with regard to the above questions and  request a review of your decision at the earliest opportunity.

A further query 24/6/2016

Dear Ms Wilmott

Thank you for forwarding this information.

I asked to see all documents etc. between Taylor Wimpey (South West Thames) Ltd   and Councillors or Officers of Guildford Borough Council which relate to the construction of a school on Strategic Site 46 Normandy/Flexford.

You replied, “Please see attached four documents that refer to a school on the site. The representations received from Taylor Wimpey in response to Local Plan consultations are available on our website though the inovem system.”

You have not complied with my request. There will have been much discussion and correspondence between Taylor Wimpey and Guildford Borough Council about the school and you have not forwarded any of this to me. You have forwarded four documents that do not refer specifically to discussions about the construction of a school. And their response to the consultation is not relevant to what I have asked. 

Please forward to me copies of all documents, papers, minutes, analysis and statistics that relate discussions that have occurred between Taylor Wimpey and Councillors or Officers of GBC relating to the construction of a secondary school on strategic site 46.
