Was Dransfield really vexatious to ask about the Dartington School now it is being pulled down?

Dear Sirs

Please see the attached 5 FOIA requests from me to the Devon County Council (DCC) which have now been ignored for over a year. As you are aware, the DCC have imposed a lifetime email ban against me. Hence, I am unable to do any follow ups.

I now wish to elevate all these five requests to the ICO because I consider the DCC are in breach of the FOIA 2000 and in particular section 77of the said act.

As you will see one of my FOIA request is relevant to the Dartington Primary Eco school which is going to be demolished. This makes my FOIA request most relevant to the Public Interest Test -i.e. public purse fraud ??

For your action and files

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield

Attn FIA Department, Devon County Council.

Dears Sir/Madam

Freedom of Information request.

Under protection of the FOIA 2000, please provide me with the following Information.

A copy of the As Built Health and Safety Manual for the Dartington Eco School.

Owing to the Lifetime email ban imposed against me, you will need to make manual copies of the sought after data as opposed to sending me a PDF copy.

This is a brand new request

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
