12. Greener and Safer Chelmsford Item
Enforcement Action on Long-Term Empty Properties
Category: Paragraphs 3 and 6 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972 (Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person including the authority holding that information / Information which reveals that the authority proposes (a) to give under any enactment a notice under or by virtue of which requirements are imposed on a person; or (b) to make an order or direction under any enactment).
Public interest statement: The public interest in knowing the address of the properties and the identity of the owners does not outweigh the personal and private interests of the owners and making public the intention of the Council to make compulsory purchase order(s) in this instance may hinder its ability to do so and reduce the chances of bringing the properties back into residential use.
