    Babergh District Council are conducting an investigation in to the below premises with regard to Community Protection Issues. One part of the investigation is looking at the impact of these premises on the Emergency Services.

    Premises - Stella Maris, Hadleigh Road, Ipswich, Flats 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, 2c,3a, 3b, 3c

    The above premises opened in December 2018 – Can you please check your files and let me know how many times the Ambulance Service has received calls to attend or assist at these premise. Please supply the date and CAD reference We do not require any personal data.

    The East of England Ambulance Service Trust has determined that the information you have requested about each individual flat as well as the specific date constitutes personal data as this could be used to identify an individual and as such we will be applying exemption s.40(2) and s.40(3A)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act to this [part of your request.

    Section 40 (2)

    Any information to which a request for information relates is also exempt information if- (a) it constitutes personal data which does not fall within subsection (1), and (b) either the first, second or third condition below is satisfied   The first condition includes if disclosure of the information to a member of the public otherwise than under FOIA would contravene any of the data protection principles (s.40(3A)(a)).

    In this case the Trust believes that disclosure of the information would result in a breach of the first principle stated in the Data Protection Act 2018.

    First Data Protection Principle: (1) The first data protection principle is that the processing of personal data for any of the law enforcement purposes must be lawful and fair. (2) The processing of personal data for any of the law enforcement purposes is lawful only if and to the extent that it is based on law and either-                 (a) the data subject has given consent to the processing for that purpose, or                 (b) the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for that purpose by a competent authority   The Trust considers that disclosure of this information would not be fair and therefore the information is exempt from disclosure.

    Section 40(2) together with s.40(3A)(a) provide an absolute exemption and therefore is not subject to the public interest test.

    As each CAD reference number relates to a specific individual the Trust will not be releasing these either for the reason given above.  However, we have grouped the data across all of the flats and per month and this can be found below.  In line with our reasoning under exemption s.40(2) we have only provided the exact number where the figure is 5 or above, those lower than this are marked as <5.
