Dear Forestry Commission,
Can you please provide details of land in south east England ( counties of E Sussex W Sussex / Kent which are managed , controlled , leased or owned by the forestry commission where deer stalking leases exist?.
Dear Mr Goodsell
Thank you for your request for information through the What Do They Know
website. My assessment is that the information you are seeking is exempt
under section 39(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 because this
information is “environmental information”, as defined in regulation 2 of
the Environmental Information Regulations 2004. You should note that
Environmental Information under the Regulations has the same meaning as in
Article 2(1) of European Council Directive 2003/4/EC. Your request must
therefore be considered under these Regulations.
The Forestry Commission has awarded Deer Control Licenses on the Public
Forest Estate in the following areas in East Sussex, West Sussex and Kent:
Netherfield Wood – East Sussex
Snape Wood – East Sussex
Vinehall Forest – East Sussex
I have tried to deal with your request as fully as possible. However,
should you wish to complain about the way your request has been handled

Complaints regarding non-compliance with the requirements of the open
information legislation should initially be made to the Forestry
Commission itself. We aim to resolve any complaints with you directly.
However, should the matter fail to be resolved, you may make an appeal to
the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Further information on the role of the Information Commissioner and
guidance on FOI/EIR can be found on the Commissioner’s web site:
www.ico.org.uk or by calling the helpline: 0303 123 1113.
