Pocklington Town Council Stone-walls ICO

Last month the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) intervened with Pocklington Town Council (PTC) due to PTC failing to conduct themselves lawfully.

PTC Clerk – Gordon Scaife

As PTC had breached the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act by failing to address my FOI request within the legal timeframe ICO intervened on 22 July giving PTC 20 working days to reply to my request.

If I did not receive a reply by 20 August ICO informed me to contact them again.

I requested:

  • Copy of the communication with the ICO to register as a CCTV operator
  • Copy of the stated purpose for the CCTV system
  • The Privacy Impact Assessment for the CCTV system
  • Contact details of the CCTV Data Controller

PTC has stonewalled ICO, are operating outwith legislation and are wasting taxpayers resources in the process.

ICO has been informed of the further unlawful conduct of PTC.

What does PTC have to hide?
