Dear Shrewsbury Sixth Form College,
This request relates to Environmental Legislation, specifically Air Conditioning Inspection Reporting, which is mandatory for buildings which are air conditioned above a statutory minimum size. Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has recently taken over compliance.

Q. How many buildings do you occupy which have air conditioning. Provide addresses?
Q. Who is the responsible person for ensuring that your buildings are legally compliant on this mandatory environmental matter? Provide the name, position, address, email address and direct telephone number of the responsible person.
Q. All reports are mandatorily lodged on the MHCLG database. No reports are currently lodged or are out of date, you are therefore non-compliant. Has your Governing Body been made aware of this breach?
Q. Provide the name and email address of the ultimate person who has made the decision to ignore this Environmental Legislation.
Q. Provide the name and email address of the Board Principal/Director of the College.
Q. If you use a Facilities Management Company to manage compliance, who are they?

Yours faithfully,

Jessica Thomas

Q. All reports are mandatorily lodged on the MHCLG database. No reports are currently lodged or are out of date, you are therefore non-compliant. Has your Governing Body been made aware of this breach?

Your supposition, that there is a breach, is incorrect.

The reports are lodged under the following RRN numbers –

0150-0458-4379-8292-5002 (22 February 2018) London Road
0140-0158-7919-1392-9006 (22 February 2018) English Bridge Campus

The cooling/heating capacity of the air conditioning system located at the Welsh Bridge Campus is rated at less than 12kw, therefore under the current TM-44 regulations we are not required to lodge a report on the MHCLG database

Q. Provide the name and email address of the ultimate person who has made the decision to ignore this Environmental Legislation.

Your supposition that the College has ignored the Environmental Legislation is incorrect.

The College has met its obligations under the TM44 regulations.

Q. Provide the name and email address of the Board Principal/Director of the College.

Mr James Staniforth
[email address]

Q. If you use a Facilities Management Company to manage compliance, who are they?
