Hello, this is a question about a County Council matter, but it relates to a PC decision, so I hope someone can advise. (I am not on the Parish Council, I'm asking as an individual)
Our County Council refused a request to reinstate some street trees, because they said the work was too expensive. Via a FOI request, I asked the Council if I could see the quote (from a private contractor) for doing the work. They sent it, but they redacted all the figures, apparently to conceal the very information I'd asked for! As it is obviously public money, is this normal procedure? How are we to know how they reached their decision?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
