Brentwood Borough Council

FOI 10517

Co-operative Store, Harewood Road, Brentwood


I believe that Brentwood Borough Council owns the lease to the Co-operative Store premises in Harewood Road, Pilgrim's Hatch, Brentwood.

If this is the case I would be most grateful if you could advise how long this lease has to run before it is due for renewal.


Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) we have the right to refuse a request for information held if an exemption applies. We believe in this case such an exemption applies and have decided to refuse your request.

In relation to the FOIA request referenced above the Information is commercially sensitive. The release of the Information is likely to prejudice commercial interests and, as such, falls under Section 43 FOIA exemption and disclosure would enable competitors to use such information to their advantage and to a commercial detriment and result in confidential information proprietary to a third party being released.

For these reasons considers that the public interest in maintaining the exemption under Section 43 of the FOIA outweighs any public interest in disclosing the Information.
