Request for Hazardous Activities and Industries List
On 4 September 2008 Mr Sharpe sought from the Council “details of the 3099 ‘Unverified HAIL’ sites in the region, i.e. their location and the activity/industry that are known to have the potential to cause land contamination”.
On 1 October 2008 the Council refused to provide the information relying on sections 7(2)(b)(ii) and 7(2)(c)(i) of the LGOIMA. Mr Sharpe complained to the Ombudsman about this refusal.
