Dear Environment Agency,

I write to request, under the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR), the R1 applications and associated information submitted in support of these applications (or in response to EA queries as part of the R1 certification process) held by the Environment Agency (EA) for all undecided R1 applications for pyrolysis and/or gasification municipal waste incinerators (i.e. all "ATT" facilities other than those dedicated to ASR).

For the avoidance of doubt, by 'undecided' I mean instances where a Stage 1 or Stage 2 R1 application has been submitted to the EA (but not necessarily validated) and where that application has yet to be determined (i.e. no R1 certificate has been issued in response to the application) and has not been withdrawn.

I am keen to gain a better understanding of the R1 applications currently under consideration by the EA. For example, I believe that Chinook Sciences is seeking a Design Stage R1 certificate for their Blenheim Gardens facility in Bulwell near Nottingham, and I anticipate that Chinook's Bulwell application would fall within our EIR request.

I would be happy to clarify our request, if need be.

Kind regards,
Shlomo Dowen

National Requests, Environment Agency

Dear Shlomo Dowen

RE: Request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(FOIA) / Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR)

 

We refer to your request for information of 17^th February 2017 for
information on the following;

 

‘the R1 applications and associated information submitted in support of
these applications (or in response to EA queries as part of the R1
certification process) held by the Environment Agency (EA) for all
undecided R1 applications for pyrolysis and/or gasification municipal
waste incinerators (I.e. all “ATT” facilities other than those dedicated
to ASR)’.

 

We respond to requests for information that is held under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and the associated Environmental Information
Regulations 2004 (EIR).The information you have requested is environmental
and we are therefore considering your request under the provisions of the
EIR. 

 

Normally our response would be due on 20^th March 2017 (20 working days).
However, due to a claim for commercial confidence which there is a
statutory appeal period associated with. This ends on Monday 10^th April
2017 therefore we are unable to comply with the original FoI request
charter deadline.

 

As allowed for under EIR regulation 7, we are therefore extending the
period within which we will respond from 20 working days to 40 working
days. We will therefore respond by Monday 19^th April 2017. We will of
course endeavour to respond to you before then if we can.

 

If you are not satisfied with our decision to extend the time for our
response you can contact us to ask for our decision to be reviewed. If you
are still not satisfied following this, you can then make an appeal to the
Information Commissioner, who is the statutory regulator for Freedom of
Information.

 

The address is: Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water
Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.

Tel: 0303 123 1113 (local rate) or 01625 545 745 (national rate).

Fax: 01625 524 510.
