FOI West, Cheshire West and Chester Council

Dear Mr Alden

 

Thank you for your request for information of 1st February 2018 which has
been logged as 4800259.

 

We confirm that your request has been dealt with under the Environmental
Information Regulations 2004. 

 

The FOIA provides that environmental information is an absolute exemption
(section 39(1)) and therefore requests for environmental information must
be dealt with under the EIR.

 

The EIR defines environmental information as being any information in
written, visual, aural, electronic or any material form on- 

 

            2(1) (a) the state of the elements of the environment, such as
air and atmosphere,  water, soil, land, landscape and natural sites
including wetlands, coastal and marine areas, biological diversity and its
components, including genetically modified organisms, and the interaction
among these elements;

           

2(1)(b) factors such as substances, energy, noise, radiation or waste,
including radioactive waste, emissions, discharges and other releases into
the environment, affecting or likely to affect the elements of the
environment referred to in (a);

 

2(1)( c ) measures (including administrative measures)such as policies,
legislation, plans, programmes, environmental agreements, and activities
affecting or likely to affect the elements and factors referred to in (a)
and (b) as well as measures or activities designed to protect those
elements;

 

2(1) (d) reports on the implementation of environmental legislation;

 

2(1) (e) cost-benefit and other economic analyses and assumptions used
within the framework of the measures and activities referred to in (c);

 

2(1) (f) the state of human health and safety, including the contamination
of the food chain, where relevant, conditions of human life, cultural
sites and built structures inasmuch as they are or may be affected by the
state of the elements of the environment referred to in (a) or, through
those elements by any, matters referred to in (b) and (c).

 

The request therefore falls to be considered within Regulation 2 (1) (a)
(b) and (c) of the EIR as the information requested concerns allotments in
the Borough.

 

For the purposes of clarity your request is reproduced below.

 

As of January 2018, please could you tell me for each Allotment site in
your district:

1) It's name

2) It's location

3) It's area in hectares (please do not give this answer in plots)

4) Is it a statutory allotment
