Submitted application by Link Group for Ravenscraig Hospital site: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

Copy of the formal application for grant through the affordable housing programme submitted by Link Group for the Ravenscraig Hospital site in 2019.


Attached is a copy of most of the information you requested in the form of a report generated by the online grant application system.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because an exemption(s) under section(s) s.38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA applies to that information. The reasons why that exemption(s) applies are explained below.

The grant application system records the name of the individual member of staff who inputs the data and this name has been redacted from the final report.

This exemption is not subject to the 'public interest test', so we are not required to consider if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.
