Broad Street office lighting survey (FOI)
Broad Street office lighting survey (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 24 December 2019.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
I understand there was a staff survey recently issued to Broad street staff about the lighting. Please could I see the individual responses, with any personal identifying information redacted?
The survey is not yet completed and therefore findings are not available to share. The staff survey will not close till the end of December 2019.
It should be noted that the relevant department would also be unable to share the individual responses requested. as such individual responses would be exempt under Article 25 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.
Individual responses identify where in the building an individual works and also allow members of staff the opportunity to comment upon the lighting in their area of employment. In such cases, commentary would be likely to identify individuals.

In determining for the purposes of this Article whether the lawfulness principle in Article 8(1)(a) of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 would be contravened by the disclosure of information, paragraph 5(1) of Schedule 2 to that Law (legitimate interests) is to be read as if sub-paragraph (b) (which disapplies the provision where the controller is a public authority) were omitted.
