i) Copies of any leases of the seabed in Loch Hourn for finfish farming; and
ii) Copies of any options to lease, for the same purpose
We have redacted the signatory’s names as this is personal data as defined in Data Protection legislation (Data Protection Act 2018 and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)). Disclosure of their names would contravene Principle 1 (processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner) and Principle 2 (used for a new purpose outside its specified legitimate purpose) of GDPR; therefore exception 11(2) under EIRs is applied.
We do not have any options to lease in Loch Hourn at the time of your request; nor do we have any past option to lease (exception 10(4)(a) under EIRs– information not held, is applied) as the process of Lease Option Agreements is a more recent and was introduced after the dates of all the above leases.
