FREEDOM OF INFORMATION
The Freedom of
Information Act and Environmental Information Regulations give members of
the public who require information that would normally be denied, the
right to request personal data held on file by councils such as Wealden
Sussex County, Rother
District, Lewes, Brighton
and Hove City and Eastbourne
One way of trying to push a planning application through is not to tell anyone about it. Once passed, there is no right of appeal to the Secretary of State. The only way to challenge any Abuse of Process, would then be by Judicial Review - and not many people could afford the legal fees attaching to such a process - that is in effect the preserve of the rich.
Where the law is
only available to the rich, that is an Article 14 violation and a system
that Queen Victoria would
not be amused about.
