Dear Mr Cole
Thank you for your request for all correspondence from and with Dartmoor National Park regarding Forestry operations at Heckwood, Vixen Tor Quarry or within the Sampford Spiney SSSI received on 17 June 2019.
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. Your request has therefore been considered under these Regulations.
Please find attached all correspondence the Forestry Commission holds in scope of your request. Personal information has been redacted to avoid any potential breach of data protection legislation.
We 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 please contact:

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.
