Dear Mr Pritchard 
 
Request for Information: Fencing at Chalgrove 
 
Thank you for your enquiry dated 4 June 2012. This was passed to the Defence Infrastructure 
Organisation (DIO), the Ministry of Defence (MOD) body responsible for managing the defence 
estate and has been dealt with under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000. 
 
You asked how much the work cost to replace the fencing at the small plot of land on the Western 
end of Chalgrove village, and why this expenditure was necessary. 
 
I can confirm that the MOD holds no information that falls within the scope of your request. 
 
I have been advised that the former RAF Chalgrove was leased to Martin Baker Aircraft Company  
Ltd by way of a 99 year lease with effect from 25 March 1964. I understand that the land in 
question forms part of this lease, and so consequentially the fencing works were carried out by the 
tenant, at their cost, not the MOD’s. 
 
If you are not satisfied with this response or you wish to complain about any aspect of the handling 
of your request, then you should contact me in the first instance. If informal resolution is not 
possible and you are still dissatisfied then you may apply for an independent internal review by 
contacting the Head of Corporate Information, 2nd Floor, MOD Main Building, Whitehall, SW1A 
2HB (e-mail xxxxxxxxxx@xxx.xx). Please note that any request for an internal review must be 
made within 40 working days of the date on which the attempt to reach informal resolution has 
come to an end. 
 
If you remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you may take your complaint to the 
Information Commissioner under the provisions of Section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act. 
Please note that the Information Commissioner will not investigate your case until the MOD 
internal review process has been completed. Further details of the role and powers of the 
Information Commissioner can be found on the Commissioner's website, www.ico.gov.uk
 
 

 
Yours sincerely
