Here it is. Wokingham Regeneration £100m contract. Sorta.

So after an appeal and involving the ICO the information that Cllr Alistair Corrie refused to share with you, even though it is the fair and proper thing to do has been been made available by the disputes team at Wokingham BC.

Or at least some of it.

The strip out list is this.


  • Financial figures – all have been redacted due to commercial sensitivity
  • Other figures (percentages etc)   - all have been redacted as they could lead to a commercial disadvantage to our commercial sector partners if other potential customers/clients have access to such information
  • Timescales - all have been redacted as they could lead to a commercial disadvantage to our commercial sector partners if other potential customers/clients have access to such information
  • Conditions – identification and detail of all conditions have been redacted as they could lead to a commercial disadvantage to our commercial sector partners if other potential customers/clients have access to such information
  • Company names have been retained but personal names have been redacted for Data Protection reasons 
  • Identification of potential suppliers and operators have been redacted due to commercial sensitivity
  • Many of the appendicies have been redacted in full as they contain detailed financial information which is deemed commercially sensitive

I will be continuing with the ICO compaint. I've not read this mountainous document yet but I'm confident that this level of redacted 'competitive' information also limits us from having any idea if we are getting a good deal. A bad public contract is normally benefits both deal makers at the expense of the public and create a drive towards developing over green spaces.
