We answered

Our Ref:         FOI-1056-1920

Thank you for your request received on 29 May 2019 asking for a copy of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Steering Group meeting minutes.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy. We do hold the information you require.

Please find the requested information attached. The Action Note from 8 January 2019 (Action Note CSG - 08.01.19) refers to incorporating the state aid issue (as checked by Dentons) into the report that accompanied the Mayoral approval form. Please note that the reference to Dentons and the Steering Group (SG) does not constitute or imply any waiver of legal professional privilege in respect of the subject of the legal advice.

In accordance with the FOI Act, we are not obliged to supply some of the information as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to information under section 41.

Some of the information from the Action Note from 5 March 2019 (CSG Action Note - 05.03.19_Redacted) has been withheld because the information was provided to us on the basis of an understanding that it would be held in confidence and therefore it possesses the necessary quality of confidence to justify exemption. This exemption is an absolute exemption, which is not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest favours application of the exemption.

In accordance with our obligations under Data Protection legislation some information has been withheld from the attached correspondence, as required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the legislation, specifically the first principle of Article 5 of the General Data Protection Regulation which requires all processing of personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions which would make the processing ‘fair’.

This exemption to the right of access to information is an absolute exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest favours use of the exemption.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
