CMBLNC Info Requests, Environment Agency

Dear Mr Mudge

 

Thank you for contacting the Environment Agency regarding Kingmoor.

 

As your request for information falls under either the Freedom of
Information Act or Environmental Information Regulations we must respond
to you within 20 working days. 

 

Due to the present situation with Corona Virus and the fact that our staff
are having to work from home we ask that you bear with us at this
difficult time.  We will try and get a response to you as soon as we can
but it may well take longer than 20 working days if staff are poorly or
are unable to access files or computer programmes at home.

 

In the meantime you may wish to look at [1]www.data.gov.uk to see if the
data you have requested is available for you online.

 

You may find it helpful to look online at [2]The Flood Hub, which has been
developed to hold up to date information about flooding in the North West,
including what the Environment Agency is doing and what steps you can do
yourself, to help increase your flood resilience.

 

For further information on what you can expect from us and our full
service commitment to you, please click this link;

Dear CMBLNC Info Requests,

The Environment Agency's response to my information request is overdue. Please explain the delay and let me know when I can expect to receive the information I have requested.

Thank you for your help.

Dear Mr Mudge

Please accept my apologies for the delay in providing you with this information and for not being in contact with you sooner. To narrow down the scale of the search and to assist our technical teams in providing the information as soon as possible, please can I check the dates you wish us to search for the information between. On checking our files we sent our last response to you on 7 April 2021, can you confirm if you would like us to send information from this date onwards?

Kind regards

Katherine Austwick
Customer Engagement Team Leader

Dear Ms Austwick,

I think the last correspondence between the Environment Agency and the applicant that I received from the previous FOI requests was dated 07 December 2020 11:55. Please supply all communications after that. If the EA now has a record of additional communications prior to that date and time that it did not have when information requests CL191696 and CL203501 were processed, please also supply those communications.

Am I to understand from your email that the EA has not started processing my information request even though the legislation requires requests to be responded to as soon as possible and no later than 20 working days? Please explain this delay.

Yours sincerely,

D Mudge

CMBLNC Info Requests, Environment Agency

Dear Mr Mudge

Dear Katherine,

Thank you for telephoning me on Friday.

I understood from our telephone conversation that you would be able to send me the information yesterday at the latest. Are you able to give me a new date when I can expect the requested information?

Yours sincerely,
