In an attempt to understand the Councils decision making process and it’s contacts with the landowner in this case PathWatch submitted a Freedom Of Information request to Kirklees way back in 2018. As we often find the publicly paid for Council was very reluctant to disclose anything at all. In fact all we got was a photo taken in a field on a wet summer day that could have been anywhere. That’s how valued engaged members of the public are these days. It wasn’t even a good photo….
After exhausting the councils internal appeals procedure we’ve gone on to the grandly titled Information Commissioner. Having looked at our case they’ve decided feel the councils’ corporate collar on this one.
More on this at a later date.
