All information collected by you pursuant to your statutory duty under section 1 of Acquisition of Land (Authorisation Procedure)(Scotland) Act 1947 for all Notices/Orders that:
(1) have been served,
(2) remain extant, (that is to say have been served but are not considered complied with)
(3) have been complied with (where there are no works left to be carried out)
During the dates 1st July 2020 to the 1st July 2021.
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.
The information you have requested is contained within the register of Compulsory Purchase Orders considered by Ministers since 1 January 2012 and is available to view at the following link:-
The register is updated quarterly.
The Scottish Government is committed to publishing all information released in response to Freedom of Information requests. View all FOI responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses.
