Dear Mr Henderson,

I'm ever so sorry but please could you replace the previous covering letter (4 August) that I sent you with the one attached to this mail. I sincerely apologise but I just noticed that I sent a draft version of the letter instead of the final version. The draft version had an exception quoted that is not the right one for this EIR. I have now amended this exception (12e) to the right one(s) - 12 (a) and (d) - and I have provided even further detail on reasons for the exceptions.

As such I have missed the 20-day deadline for return of this EIR as it is now 22 days since your request was logged. Please again accept my sincerest apologies for the delay.

Many thanks
Joanna

Mr Henderson,

I apologise for the delay but have been on annual leave. We have just received an FOI request from yourself which we will respond to in due course. In the meantime there has only been one set of minutes which we are in the process of finalising and putting onto the website. There has been some difficulty in determining where it should be hosted on the website but we are in the process of resolving this.

Again sincere apologies for the delay.
Kind Regards
Joanna
