FOI, Torfaen Council

Dear Mr Price,

 

17/495: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST

 

Thank you for your email dated 04/07/2017 requesting information under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. I am now in a position to respond to your
questions as follows:

 

1. Please could you list the land areas owned by Torfaen Borough Council
where it is permitted to use a metal detector?

 

There is no land that the Council has specifically designated as suitable
for metal detecting. All requests to date have been declined because
unfortunately we do not have the resources necessary to process permits
and monitor the metal detecting activities. However should requests be
submitted for Local Nature Reserves, they would be considered on a case by
case basis.

 

2. Is a special permit required? If so, how to obtain one?

 

We do not issue permits for this purpose.

 

Information supplied in response to any Freedom of Information Act request
may be subject to copyright. A single copy of information supplied under
the Freedom of Information Act may only be used for personal,
non-commercial research or study, unless stated otherwise. It must not be
passed to others, copied or re-published in whole or in part without
permission from the copyright holder. Any copyright statement that forms
part of or in any way refers to the information provided must not be
altered or removed.

 

If you have any queries about this letter or are unhappy about the service
you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a complaint
or request a review, please do not hesitate to contact me in writing.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint, you may apply
directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the
Information Commissioner’s Office (Wales) cannot make a decision unless
you have exhausted the complaints procedure provided by this Council. The
Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information
Commissioner’s Office (Wales), 2^nd Floor, Churchill House, Churchill Way,
Cardiff, CF10 2HH. Telephone 029 2067 8400 or Fax 029 2067 8399 or e-mail

Yours sincerely
