FOI reference: FOI/17/01888
Date received: 17 August 2017
Date responded: 6 September 2017

Information requested

LDP-340-1 Perth and Kinross Development Plan Examination.

You requested the following information relevant to the examination of the Perth and Kinross Local Development Plan, specifically in respect to Issue 21 : Perth Strategic Development Plan Area – West/North West Perth :

  1. The submission sent by The Muir Group (07690)

  2. The submission sent by A Ritchie & Son/M & S M Bullough (08651)

  3. The submission sent by The Pilkington Trust (09086)

  4. The submission sent by The John Dewar Lamberkin Trust (09166)


As the information you have requested is 'environmental information' for the purposes of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs), we are required to deal with your request under those Regulations. We are applying the exemption at section 39(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), so that we do not also have to deal with your request under FOISA.

This exemption is subject to the 'public interest test'. Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption. We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemption, because there is no public interest in dealing with the same request under two different regimes. This is essentially a technical point and has no material effect on the outcome of your request.

I enclose electronic copies of all the information you requested.

Due to the file size of the documents released, copies can be provided on request by emailing, quoting the FOI reference number FOI/17/01888
