Dear Tom Livesey,

With regards to your request for information, the Contact Officer dealing with your enquiry has asked for clarification:

• Please can you clarify if you are asking for information relating to farm land owned by Pembrokeshire County Council only, or does the request include private farm land?

Please could you clarify this, as without clarification we are unable to process your request.

As section 8 of the Act specifies that we must be clear as to what information you are seeking before your request becomes a valid FOI request, the statutory 20 working day deadline will not begin until we receive the clarification of your request, although we endeavour to respond to all requests as quickly as possible.

If we do not receive clarification within 40 working days (24/07/2022) your request will be cancelled, in accordance with section 1(3) of the Act.

Kind regards,

Dear FOI Team,

Apologies for the confusion.

If you have access to the information, I would ideally like both. However, if you only have access to information concerning farm land owned by Pembrokeshire County Council then that will suffice.

Looking forward to your response.

Yours sincerely,

Tom Livesey
