Dear Mr Manning,

I have spoken with the planning officer involved with the VIE
development. He advises me that there are approximately 200 drawings in
the application, most of them being A1 @ £3.40 each, or A0 @ £4.80, in
size and cost.
We are unable to produce them electronically for you.

Perhaps it would be helpful for you to come and view the file and it's
drawings and let us know which ones you have selected to be copied.

Yours sincerely
Karen Lumb.

Dear Karen Lumb,

Thank you very much for your response.

Yes given the number of drawings, it is definitely best I come in and view the file! Could you let me know where I would need to go and what times I could view them? As I work lunchtimes, early morning (0730-0900) or later afternoon (4-6pm) would be most convenient for me.

Again, thank you for your help

Yours sincerely,

Ian Manning

Minor edit, I don't work *on lunchtimes* that was meant to read "as I work, the times that would be best would be lunchtimes, ..." etc

Karen Lumb, Cambridge City Council

Phew! Thanks for the update!

I'll make some arrangements for all the files to be available and get back to you.

Karen Lumb.

Sorry for the tardy response Karen, I've been away.

I'm going to come over on Wednesday, aiming for 1615. Please let me know if that is ok with you? I just need to confirm with one other and then that will be definite.

Ian

Karen Lumb, Cambridge City Council

Hi,

That will be fine - although bear in mind that we close at 5.00pm.
This may mean that we wont have time to do any copying whilst you are here but once you have selected which ones you want, we can copy them and post them to you.

Karen.
