    The District Council has appealed against the Information Commissioner’s request that they publish the full, un-redacted report from consultants Davis Langdon, which had looked in detail at relocation:

    Unredacted Minutes and Reports of Relocation Working Parties – a Freedom of Information request to East Devon District Council – WhatDoTheyKnow

    This case is now with the Information Tribunal: case EA/2014/0072:

    In fact, the Davis Langdon report had not been made available to the Inspector when considering the District Council’s draft Local Plan:
