FOI request (FOIR-297679138)
Council interventions UK
Requested Tue 19 January 2021
Responded Mon 08 February 2021
From September 1 up to date:
(Or from the first week of each month up to date from September 1 if this is too long a timeframe)
Can you please provide (redacted as needed) internal communications, memos, notices, emails, video conference calls, advice, webinars, transcripts and so on of these?
- From potentially
Staff networks, working groups, intranet notices, senior members staff and management, internal recommendations on behalf of senior staff or the organisation as a whole, reports, letters, petitions and external communications to senior staff (this is only suggested material)
- My main focus is email communication to and from the most senior staff: council leader, deputy leader, Chief Executive, staff members and councillors whose portfolios manage heritage specifically
Actions, interventions and projects intended to decolonise or address contested legacies and diversity - particularly with regard to named figures who may be problematic colonialism, racism and slavery
This could found using key terms:
"Decolonising", "Colonialism", "imperialism", "empire", "institutional racism", "white supremacy", "far right"
In particular I would like to know what particular figures or objects in the built environment (statues, road names, building names and so on) have been a focus for review of re-assessment, and what action has been proposed internally to deal with this
As a focussed question it could be framed as: "What work is being done, or has been proposed in the above material, to tackle historic legacies of slavery, racism, or other contested legacies?"
Hastings Borough Council holds no information in respect of this request. No review has taken place yet.
