Dear Cumbria County Council,

I make this request under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

At the Development Control and Regulation Committee meeting on 12 October 2022, the Development Control Manager said, in reference to the public consultation expiry date of planning application 1/21/9004:

"That remained on the website until the 5th October when it was pointed out to us that ... oh sorry, we had a ... we felt the need to consult Natural England on the biodiversity matter, so we gave Natural England until 11 October to make comments to us. Unfortunately that reconsultation meant the website date was changed to 11 October."

This information request relates to this reconsultation of Natural England referred to above, the response(s) to this reconsultation (if any) and the Council's assessment of any Natural England's response(s) (or lack of response).

1. Please provide the relevant request(s) made to Natural England regarding the reconsultation referred to above.

2. Please provide Natural England's response(s) to the request(s) shown in 1 above. Please include any attachments (if present) to any emails.

3. Please provide information held by Cumbria County Council that shows the Council's assessment of 1/18/9006 as amended by 1/21/9004 in light of the information (or absence of information) described by point 2 above. Please include internal emails relevant to this assessment. Any previous assessments of 1/18/9006 as amended by 1/21/9004 prior to the request in 1 above do not need to be included.

Please provide the information by email in PDF format. Thank you for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,

Kenneth Lowe
