Dear Mr Baker 

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION

 

Further to your request for information received on 23 May 2012 I am
writing to confirm that the Council does hold the information of the
description specified in your e-mail.

 

I therefore give below the answer to your question.

 

Can you tell me from where it has been sourced that what is now Sea
Crescent, Jaywick was once a site for munitions production and testing?

 

Answer:            The information was from old ordnance survey maps that
we have previously had access to.

 

The maps were made available to TDC by  Essex County Council 

 

The 1867-1895 map shows no development in the area with marsh and beach
shown

1896-1912 show a rifle range covering the area.

1914-1924 show the butts still towards the seaward end of the range , and

1935-1947 show the development of the area with a few bungalows. 

 

I hope this information is of assistance to you. However if you feel that
the Council have failed to deal with your request for information
correctly you can request that the matter is reviewed in accordance with
the Authority's Complaints Procedure. Details of this procedure can be
obtained from all Council offices or from our website
(www.tendringdc.gov.uk).

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

 

FOI Compliance Team (complaints), Information Commissioner's Office,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF

 

If you have any other queries about this matter then please contact me.

 

Yours sincerely
