The ICO decided that "as the complainant and his family have either owned or occupied the land in question during the time period specified, all the information falling within the scope of the request is in fact the complainant’s own personal data". The ICO applied Regulation 5(3) of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR) which prevents disclosure to the world at large of information including personal data. Also, the ICO considered that the personal data at issue were criminal offence data about the complainant, as described by Article 10 GDPR, and not special category of personal data, as described by Article 9 GDPR.
