Dear Mr Williams,
Thank you for your email of 13 November 2019 requesting the following information: “Can you please provide me any details of a more recently created Bunker (within last 30 years)
which was dug out at the now disused Copenacre site (or surrounding). I understand that there
was a flooding at this bunker immediately after completion which rendered it useless so it was
emptied and demolished or sealed. Can you please provide me with any details of the cost of this
bunker, its location and size.
Plans would be very much appreciated if you have them.”
I am treating your correspondence as a request for information under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 (FOIA).
A search for the information has now been completed within the Ministry of Defence (MOD), and I
can confirm that no information in scope of your request is held.
I can inform you that that no bunker has been built underneath the former MOD site at Copenacre
within the past 30 years.
