An FOI request was made on the 4th of August. (6479106 reference number) One of the responses was an image ( in it said "Dear Mr Springthorpe Thank you for your email. I note that you are effectively giving the applicant an unlimited time to respond to your requests for further information/documentation before determining their application. If the situation should change and you are going to impose a time limit please would you let me know when that decision is to be taken and what it is to be.

You kindly confirmed in our conversation on the 7th May that from now on you will keep me appraised of the conversations and correspondence you have with the applicant and please do so shortly after having them."

How is it that the planning application had an unlimited time period (please provide proof?) Who is Mr Springthorpe?

Why was the sent section in the email retracted (please provide proof?) Is it possible to confirm who the retracted part of the document is for example but not limited to: part of Barnet, the developer, a person objecting to the application?
