Dear Foi, Lewisham Council

The website WhatDoTheyKnow is tracking your non response to my Freedom of Information request regarding asbestos contamination in Beckenham Place Park. Given that you had previously advised elsewhere that this has already been dealt with, and given that the information I have requested are all protocols and recommendations contained in planning documents on your website, it should be easy enough for you to fully answer my FOI. I look forward to your prompt response.

Yours sincerely,

Carole Hope

Dear Ms Hope

 

Re: Freedom of Information Act 2000

Environmental Information Regulations 2004

Reference No: 3146465

 

Thank you for your request for information held by London Borough of
Lewisham. Your request has been considered under the Environmental
Information Regulations 2004. Please accept my sincere apologies for the
delay in providing you with this response.

 

Please note, due to the number of attachments, we will be sending you a
number of emails separately, to provide you with the information
requested.

 

I have included below a copy of your request, followed by the Council’s
response, under each heading.

 

A) Photographs of

1) the air monitoring pumps in place at the asbestos excavation,
processing and storage sites in Beckenham Place Park

 

Please see attached

 

2) photographs of personal monitoring pumps attached to operatives
carrying out hand-picking in Beckenham Place Park

 

Please see attached

 

3) photographs of the impregnable sheeting/membrane covering the excavated
soil in both pre-screen areas and post-screening areas, prior to certified
clean soils being spread on top.

 

Please see attached

 

4) photographs of the finished clean soil areas

 

Please see attached – Please note: – these were close to the burial sites,
to avoid excessive vehicle movements on site. You can see some of the
stockpiles in the photos of the membrane

 

5) all other photographs as required by the records to be kept, as per
paragraph 3.5.2 of the REC report registered under planning reference
DC/19/110865.

 

Upon completion of the installation of remediation measures by the
applicant in completing the development, these records are required to be
submitted to planning for approval in conjunction with other information
as what is termed a ‘closure report’. This report verifies that the agreed
remediation measures and management of any contamination on-site is in
accordance with previously-approved details. It is at this point we will
get sight of the photos, records etc, and if we believe any changes are
necessary or further information required, would request such before
agreeing any contamination pathways have been suitably severed or
otherwise managed/disposed of so as to not pose a risk to end-users of the
site and discharge the relevant condition.

 

The closure report is required to be submitted and approved by the local
planning authority (i.e. Lewisham planning) under condition 5(c) of the
enabling planning permission DC/16/099042, prior to occupation of the
development. It is our understanding the components of the park subject to
the planning permission have not been completed nor any approved use of
buildings occupied for those uses, therefore the time trigger for that
information to be submitted to us has not yet passed.

 

 

B)

1) GMOPLC62 Waste Movement Log offsite,

 

Please see attached

 

2) GMOPLC HMNP soil movement record on site,

 

Please see attached

 

3) Consignment notes relating to any Asbestos Contaminated Material that
was disposed of off-site

 

We regret we are currently unable to provide you with this documentation.
We are in the process of obtaining this from a third party and anticipate
being in a position to respond to this part of your request by the end of
this week.

 

4) Certificate of air monitoring undertaken.

 

Please attached

 

C)

1) the square metre area covered by the geotextile membrane referred to in
A) 3) above and the equivalent 600mm of certified clean soils

2) the name of the person certifying the 600mm of clean soil

3) the specific site in the park from where the 600mm of clean soil was
sourced

4) details of specific locations where Asbestos Contaminated Material was
identified

5) the independent Environmental Health Officer to whom test results have
been shared

 

All tests of the contaminated ground were carried out by REC (Resource and
Environmental Consultants Ltd). Often samples were collected by REC and
sent off to other labs for testing. REC collate and interpret the results
and liaise with the client. REC also carried out the validation testing.

 

The independent Environmental Health Officer is employed to verify the
remediation strategy is appropriate, and sufficient, and to confirm that
it has then be adhered to. Capita Property provided this service -
Technical Director for Infrastructure projects.

 

The plans provided show the areas covered by the geotextile membrane (the
whole receiving sites) and the areas covered by the 600mm of clean cover.

 

D) Please advise the amounts of “Council spending over £250” which relate
to

1) payments to id Verde for asbestos contamination processing, broken down
to include manpower and all material and plant

2) consultants’ fees including the independent Environmental Health
Officer

3) transportation and disposal of Asbestos Contaminated Material offsite.

 

We apply Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, ‘Information
reasonably accessible to the applicant by other means’, to your request.

 

Details relating to Council spending over £250 can be accessed via the
below link:

 

[1]https://lewisham.gov.uk/mayorandcouncil/...

 

E) Please advise whether this process is finished and if there are
outstanding costs and the date of completion. Please provide all other
records not mentioned above that constitute record keeping as per
paragraph 3.5.2 of the REC Remediation Strategy of August 2018 i.e.
Register, Testing results, Photographs, Details of where ACM is identified
(drawings), Consignment notes relating to any ACM that is disposed of
off-site; and Certificates of any air monitoring undertaken.

 

The validation tests have been completed to certify that the procedures
required in the remediation strategy have been followed. However, we are
currently awaiting the final validation repot from REC.

 

The final stage is to seed the receiving site areas, which is taking place
currently

 

Section 21 states:

(1) Information which is readily available to the applicant otherwise than
under section 1 is exempt information.

(2) For the purposes of subsection (1)-

(a) information may be reasonably accessible to the applicant even though
it is accessible only on payment, and

(b) information is to be taken to be reasonably accessible to the
applicant if it is information which the public authority or any other
person is obliged by or under any enactment to communicate (otherwise than
by making the information available for inspection) to members of the
public on request, whether free of charge or upon payment.

(3) For the purposes of subsection (1), information which is held by a
public authority and does not fall within subsection (2)(b) is not to be
regarded as reasonably accessible to the applicant merely because the
information is available from the public authority itself on request,
unless the information is made available in accordance with the
authority’s publication scheme and any payment required is specified in,
or determined in accordance with, the scheme.

 

This acts as an exemption notice. Subsection 1 means that the Council is
relieved of the duty to communicate the requested information to an
applicant if there is an existing method by which the information can be
obtained, outside of the operation of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
This is an absolute exemption and therefore does not require the public
interests balancing test to be applied.

 

We hope you will find this information helpful.

 

You are free to use the information provided for your own purposes,
including any non-commercial research you are doing and for the purposes
of news reporting. Any other re-use, for example commercial publication,
requires the permission of the copyright holder. You may apply for
permission to re-use this information by submitting a request to

This must be requested within 40 working days of the date of this
response.

have a further right of appeal, which you can make in writing, stating
your reasons to the regulating body, the Information Commissioner's

Dear Ms Hope

 

Further to my email of 24 June 2019, I can confirm that I have today
received the below mentioned documentation that was held by a 3^rd party.
Unfortunately, due to the time I received it and the need for me to read
and redact any 3^rd party data, I am unable to provide you with this
additional documentation today. I anticipate being able to finish reading
and redacting the documentation on Monday 1^st July 2019, at which stage I
will contact you again.

 

Please accept my sincere apologies on behalf of the Council for this
additional and further delay

Dear Ms Hope

 

Re: Freedom of Information Act 2000

Environmental Information Regulations 2004

Reference No: 3146465

 

Thank you for your request for information held by London Borough of
Lewisham. Your request has been considered under the Environmental
Information Regulations 2004. Please accept my sincere apologies for the
delay in providing you with this response.

 

Please note, due to the number of attachments, we will be sending you a
number of emails separately, to provide you with the information
requested.

 

I have included below a copy of your request, followed by the Council’s
response, under each heading.

 

A) Photographs of

1) the air monitoring pumps in place at the asbestos excavation,
processing and storage sites in Beckenham Place Park

 

Please see attached

 

2) photographs of personal monitoring pumps attached to operatives
carrying out hand-picking in Beckenham Place Park

 

Please see attached

 

3) photographs of the impregnable sheeting/membrane covering the excavated
soil in both pre-screen areas and post-screening areas, prior to certified
clean soils being spread on top.

 

Please see attached

 

4) photographs of the finished clean soil areas

 

Please see attached – Please note: – these were close to the burial sites,
to avoid excessive vehicle movements on site. You can see some of the
stockpiles in the photos of the membrane

 

5) all other photographs as required by the records to be kept, as per
paragraph 3.5.2 of the REC report registered under planning reference
DC/19/110865.

 

Upon completion of the installation of remediation measures by the
applicant in completing the development, these records are required to be
submitted to planning for approval in conjunction with other information
as what is termed a ‘closure report’. This report verifies that the agreed
remediation measures and management of any contamination on-site is in
accordance with previously-approved details. It is at this point we will
get sight of the photos, records etc, and if we believe any changes are
necessary or further information required, would request such before
agreeing any contamination pathways have been suitably severed or
otherwise managed/disposed of so as to not pose a risk to end-users of the
site and discharge the relevant condition.

 

The closure report is required to be submitted and approved by the local
planning authority (i.e. Lewisham planning) under condition 5(c) of the
enabling planning permission DC/16/099042, prior to occupation of the
development. It is our understanding the components of the park subject to
the planning permission have not been completed nor any approved use of
buildings occupied for those uses, therefore the time trigger for that
information to be submitted to us has not yet passed.

 

 

B)

1) GMOPLC62 Waste Movement Log offsite,

 

Please see attached

 

2) GMOPLC HMNP soil movement record on site,

 

Please see attached

 

3) Consignment notes relating to any Asbestos Contaminated Material that
was disposed of off-site

 

We regret we are currently unable to provide you with this documentation.
We are in the process of obtaining this from a third party and anticipate
being in a position to respond to this part of your request by the end of
this week.

 

4) Certificate of air monitoring undertaken.

 

Please attached

 

C)

1) the square metre area covered by the geotextile membrane referred to in
A) 3) above and the equivalent 600mm of certified clean soils

2) the name of the person certifying the 600mm of clean soil

3) the specific site in the park from where the 600mm of clean soil was
sourced

4) details of specific locations where Asbestos Contaminated Material was
identified

5) the independent Environmental Health Officer to whom test results have
been shared

 

All tests of the contaminated ground were carried out by REC (Resource and
Environmental Consultants Ltd). Often samples were collected by REC and
sent off to other labs for testing. REC collate and interpret the results
and liaise with the client. REC also carried out the validation testing.

 

The independent Environmental Health Officer is employed to verify the
remediation strategy is appropriate, and sufficient, and to confirm that
it has then be adhered to. Capita Property provided this service -
Technical Director for Infrastructure projects.

 

The plans provided show the areas covered by the geotextile membrane (the
whole receiving sites) and the areas covered by the 600mm of clean cover.

 

D) Please advise the amounts of “Council spending over £250” which relate
to

1) payments to id Verde for asbestos contamination processing, broken down
to include manpower and all material and plant

2) consultants’ fees including the independent Environmental Health
Officer

3) transportation and disposal of Asbestos Contaminated Material offsite.

 

We apply Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, ‘Information
reasonably accessible to the applicant by other means’, to your request.

 

Details relating to Council spending over £250 can be accessed via the
below link:

 

[1]https://lewisham.gov.uk/mayorandcouncil/...

 

E) Please advise whether this process is finished and if there are
outstanding costs and the date of completion. Please provide all other
records not mentioned above that constitute record keeping as per
paragraph 3.5.2 of the REC Remediation Strategy of August 2018 i.e.
Register, Testing results, Photographs, Details of where ACM is identified
(drawings), Consignment notes relating to any ACM that is disposed of
off-site; and Certificates of any air monitoring undertaken.

 

The validation tests have been completed to certify that the procedures
required in the remediation strategy have been followed. However, we are
currently awaiting the final validation repot from REC.

 

The final stage is to seed the receiving site areas, which is taking place
currently

 

Section 21 states:

(1) Information which is readily available to the applicant otherwise than
under section 1 is exempt information.

(2) For the purposes of subsection (1)-

(a) information may be reasonably accessible to the applicant even though
it is accessible only on payment, and

(b) information is to be taken to be reasonably accessible to the
applicant if it is information which the public authority or any other
person is obliged by or under any enactment to communicate (otherwise than
by making the information available for inspection) to members of the
public on request, whether free of charge or upon payment.

(3) For the purposes of subsection (1), information which is held by a
public authority and does not fall within subsection (2)(b) is not to be
regarded as reasonably accessible to the applicant merely because the
information is available from the public authority itself on request,
unless the information is made available in accordance with the
authority’s publication scheme and any payment required is specified in,
or determined in accordance with, the scheme.

 

This acts as an exemption notice. Subsection 1 means that the Council is
relieved of the duty to communicate the requested information to an
applicant if there is an existing method by which the information can be
obtained, outside of the operation of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
This is an absolute exemption and therefore does not require the public
interests balancing test to be applied.

 

We hope you will find this information helpful.

Dear Foi, Customer, Lewisham Council,

As WhatDoTheyKnow have pointed out, your full response to my Freedom of Information request is long overdue.

I would remind you that my request was broken down into five sub-parts, a-e. Whilst I accept your reasoning for you not being able to deliver E as yet, your explanation for not delivering D is false. The information supplied on Council spending over £250 spreadsheets does not detail the information held by you and requested by me.

For B, I asked:-

B) 1) GMOPLC62 Waste Movement Log offsite, 2) GMOPLC HMNP soil movement record on site, 3) Consignment notes relating to any Asbestos Contaminated Material that was disposed of off-site 4) Certificate of air monitoring undertaken.

Turning to what you have provided me with, I note the following:-

You have provided me with two blurred documents that could be consignment note, or some sort of movement record or delivery note. The documents have been unnecessarily redacted i.e. the whole of the description as to the reason for the document being issued. In addition, the document was issued by a company in Cambridgeshire, Mick George, dated March 2019, whereas on 2 May 2019 a large removal vehicle belonging to Fords International from Derby was parked alongside the asbestos contamination site. Please clarify what these two documents are, explain the reason for the redaction and the status of the missing documents I requested as per B 1,2 or 3 above. NOTE: B4 air monitoring certificates - I am analysing these and may have some queries.

Part A- you have provided me with 18 photographs.

You have given me a photograph you claim to be of an air monitoring pump and I suggest to you it is an upside down digger basket. It bears no resemblance to air monitoring pump images sourced via google, whereas it does look like an upside down earth mover digger basket.

Three of your photographs are blurred, being of people, at least one of which appears to have been photoshopped, showing an operative in protective clothing at what seems to be a site in Beckenham Place Park, but it looks as if the image of the person has been superimposed and stretched. Of the two other photographs, which cannot be identified as Beckenham Place Park, one shows an operative standing next to a Thwaites digger, whereas the earth movers employed on this project were branded Miles Water and Morris Leslie. The other shows an operative standing next to a digger branded - first three letters - HAW. None of the people in all three photographs are active, they are merely posing, so these are not work in progress photographs, as requested by me and as required for your records.

These photographs were taken at different times of the year. There are photographs showing a membrane in Winter (the trees in the background have no leaves) and similar photographs taken in Spring/Summer. Clearly a lot of the asbestos contaminated material was hanging around for at least several months from Winter through to Spring/Summer before it was all enclosed below a membrane. The photographs labelled “complete” are also late Spring/Summer. The late Spring/Summer photographs mitigate against the advice in your officer’s email of 9th May 2019, responding to a FOI from someone else, to say that the asbestos contamination had already been dealt with and my own photographs taken in May showing work in progress.

I look forward to your response and photographs of suitably protected operatives working on hand-picking asbestos in Beckenham Place Park, plus air monitoring pumps, plus all of the documents listed in B, without redaction of description, as required for your own records.

Yours sincerely,

Carole Hope

Dear Ms Hope
 
Re: Freedom of Information Act 2000
Environmental Information Regulations 2004
Reference No:3146465- Appeal Response
 
 
We have now considered your appeal of our original response to you. We
apologise for the delay in responding. Your request was for information
regarding Beckenham Place Park Asbestos. Please find below, your
questions, out original response, your complaints and response to those
complaints:
 
Original Question and our response
 
D) Please advise the amounts of “Council spending over £250” which relate
to
1) payments to id Verde for asbestos contamination processing, broken down
to include manpower and all material and plant
2) consultants’ fees including the independent Environmental Health
Officer
3) transportation and disposal of Asbestos Contaminated Material offsite.
 
ORIGINAL RESPONSE
 
We apply Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, ‘Information
reasonably accessible to the applicant by other means’, to your request.
 
Details relating to Council spending over £250 can be accessed via the
below link:
 
[1]https://lewisham.gov.uk/mayorandcouncil/...
 
Complaint 1:
 
I would remind you that my request was broken down into five sub-parts,
a-e.  Whilst I accept your reasoning for you not being able to deliver E
as yet, your explanation for not delivering D is false.  The information
supplied on Council spending over £250 spreadsheets does not detail the
information held by you and requested by me.
 
UPDATED APPEAL RESPONSE
 
We wish to retract our application of S21 of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 to this question and apply Section 43 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000, 'Commercial interests', to this question
 
Section 43 states:
(1) Information is exempt information if it constitutes a trade secret.
(2) Information is exempt information if its disclosure under this Act
would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of any
person (including the public authority holding it).
(3) The duty to confirm or deny does not arise if, or to the extent that,
compliance with section 1(1)(a) would, or would be likely to, prejudice
the exemptions mentioned in subsection (2).
 
This acts as an exemption notice. We have applied this exemption as
Section 43 list subsection(2) because the information relates to
commercially sensitive information. We confirm that the information is
held.
 
This is a qualified exemption and requires the consideration of a public
interest test. In this case we have considered that the public interest
favours non-disclosure.  The commercially sensitive information which your
request relates to, if released to the general public could jeopardise the
commercial interests of the Council and third parties by providing an
unfair advantage in any current or future commercial negotiations.
 
 
Complaint 2
 
For B, I asked:-
 
B) 1) GMOPLC62 Waste Movement Log offsite, 2) GMOPLC HMNP soil movement
record on site, 3) Consignment notes relating to any Asbestos Contaminated
Material that was disposed of off-site 4) Certificate of air monitoring
undertaken.
 
Turning to what you have provided me with, I note the following:-
 
You have provided me with two blurred documents that could be consignment
note, or some sort of movement record or delivery note.  The documents
have been unnecessarily redacted i.e. the whole of the description as to
the reason for the document being issued.  In addition, the document was
issued by a company in Cambridgeshire, Mick George, dated March 2019,
whereas on 2 May 2019  a large removal vehicle belonging to Fords
International from Derby was parked alongside the asbestos contamination
site.  Please clarify what these two documents are, explain the reason for
the redaction and the status of the missing documents I requested as per B
1,2 or 3 above.  NOTE: B4 air monitoring certificates - I am analysing
these and may have some queries.
 
On further inspection, the 2 consignment notes that you refer to as being
‘blurred’ have been sent to you in error as they do not relate to the
disposal of any Asbestos contaminated material. We have requested these
documents from the Contractor and will forward these to you when they are
received and if they are held.
 
To clarify your question relating to a vehicle belonging to Fords
International from Derby:
 
Fords are a haulier. The lorry was on site to take away large equipment no
longer needed and not for any waste disposal.
 
The document attached below relates to B2 - the soil movement record on
site. Very little waste left the site. The asbestos was hand-picked from
any contaminated soil, put in bags, which were then taken off site. This
is a very low volume indeed.  We have asked the contractor if there are
any similar notes held for the asbestos bags and will forward these to you
if there are.
 
 
 
Complaint 3
 
Part A- you have provided me with 18 photographs.
 
You have given me a photograph you claim to be of an air monitoring pump
and I suggest to you it is an upside down digger basket.  It bears no
resemblance to air monitoring pump images sourced via google, whereas it
does look like an upside down earth mover digger basket. 
 
The air pump is the blue box to the bottom right of the image
 
 
 
Three of your photographs are blurred, being of people, at least one of
which appears to have been photoshopped, showing an operative in
protective clothing at what seems to be a site in Beckenham Place Park,
but it looks as if the image of the person has been superimposed and
stretched. Of the two other photographs, which cannot be identified as
Beckenham Place Park, one shows an operative standing next to a Thwaites
digger, whereas the earth movers employed on this project were branded
Miles Water and Morris Leslie.  The other shows an operative standing next
to a digger branded - first three letters - HAW.  None of the people in
all three photographs are active, they are merely posing, so these are not
work in progress photographs, as requested by me and as required for your
records.
 
These photographs were taken at different times of the year.  There are
photographs showing a membrane in Winter (the trees in the background have
no leaves) and similar photographs taken in Spring/Summer.  Clearly a lot
of the asbestos contaminated material was hanging around for at least
several months from Winter through to Spring/Summer before it was all
enclosed below a membrane.  The photographs labelled “complete” are also
late Spring/Summer.  The late Spring/Summer photographs mitigate against
the advice in your officer’s email of 9th May 2019, responding to a FOI
from someone else, to say that the asbestos contamination had already been
dealt with and my own photographs taken in May showing work in progress.
 
I look forward to your response and photographs of suitably protected
operatives working on hand-picking asbestos in Beckenham Place Park, plus
air monitoring pumps, plus all of the documents listed in B, without
redaction of description, as required for your own records.
 
 
The images of staff posing are those with the personal air monitoring in
place. This is to evidence the individual associated with the test. 
Photographs of this nature are expected and used to evidence which
operatives were working on which site.  Neither the Council  nor the
contractor would  ordinarily take pictures of staff in the process of hand
picking asbestos, because this would require an additional operative
present in the area, exposed to asbestos risk.
 
 
With regards to your query about timescales and seasons:
 
The contaminated soil was dealt with over a period of months, and this
process was not all completed until late May/ early June. Throughout the
process any contaminated soil was:
 
Behind heras fencing
Enclosed in a membrane once the section was completed
And most importantly – as free of asbestos as the hand picking process
could ensure.
 
 
Whilst it is unfortunate that we are not able to supply fully photographic
evidence of the process of remediation, we would like to assure you, that
the environmental consultant is required to check that the remediation has
been thorough. The environmental consultants made several visit to site
and were able to check the compliance of the process and the finished
result.  They are satisfied with the remediation that has taken place.
 
 
You are free to use the information provided for your own purposes,
including any non-commercial research you are doing and for the purposes
of news reporting. Any other re-use, for example commercial publication,
requires the permission of the copyright holder. You may apply for
permission to re-use this information by submitting a request to
[2][email address]
 
 
We hope you find this response to your review satisfactory. However, you
have a further right of appeal against this decision, which you can do so
in writing, stating your reasons to the regulating body, the Information
Commissioner's Office.

Dear Lewisham Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Lewisham Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Asbestos Contaminated Material Processing at Beckenham Place Park' before I take my complaint to Information Commissioners.

This request was based on protocols set out in two documents on your planning portal, reference DC/19/110865 i.e. Materials Management Plan and REC’s Remediation Strategy dated August 2018.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...

It is my contention that your officers have tried to deceive me. One of the documents that your own report said should be kept on your project file is a consignment note for the removal of asbestos fibres. You do not appear to have such a document and you have tried to deceive me by providing a document that is so heavily redacted it is impossible to tell what service to which it relates. Whilst I accept that redaction is acceptable in some circumstances, I do not accept a full redaction of the description of a service. In any case, you are now telling me - subsequent to sending me a document intended to deceive - that you are awaiting the consignment note from a Third Party. A consignment note that should, according to the protocols of your own reports, already be on your project file.

I also do not accept your explanations about some of the photographs, which clearly do not relate to Beckenham Place Park. You have not addressed my point that there was no heavy plant branded Thwaites or HAW, next to which the operatives posed, in Beckenham Place Park.

I will submit a question to Full Council about the costs of the Asbestos operation.

Yours faithfully,

Carole Hope

Stevens, Wendy, Lewisham Borough Council

Dear Ms Hope

Re: Freedom of Information Act 2000
Environmental Information Regulations 2004
Reference No:3146465- Appeal Response

Thank you for your further email below. As we have already carried out an appeal (attached), we will not be carrying out a further review but wish to finalise our response as promised at the time of the review.

As stated previously, the original consignment notes were sent in error for which we apologise. There was no intention to deceive you. We now have the correct consignment note relating to the removal of asbestos from the site which we attach. Please note, personal information has been redacted.

With regard to your questions regarding photographs and vehicles on site, we have contacted our contractors (Idverde) for some further explanation and clarity and below is their response:

'• Fords International from Derby – independent specialist abnormal load haulier employed to remove plant and equipment owned by Miles Water Engineering

• Thwaites digger – Thwaites are a manufacturer of dumpers  https://www.thwaitesdumpers.co.uk/index.... were a number on site supplied by different plant hire companies and Miles Water Engineering.

• Miles Water Engineering – supplied their own plant and equipment from a range of manufacturers including Robex, JCB, Twaites etc.  This is owned plant so cannot provide a hire in notification.  CAT (manufacturer) 20t articulated dumper provided by Hawk Plant Hire (note response below).

• Morris Leslie – plant hire company for which idverde contracted to supply plant and equipment for the project.

• HAW – This relates to Hawk Plant Hire http://www.hawk-plant-hire.co.uk a specialist hire company (note Hawk have been gone into administration and ceased trading).  A CAT 20t dumper and excavator were hired in from HAWK.'

'We have plenty of photographs to demonstrate this equipment active and in operation on site should this be helpful.  One such example attached which is a HAWK plant excavator and 20t dumper working on the disposal site'. 

We trust that this further response to your appeal is satisfactory. However, you have a further right of appeal against this decision, which you can do so in writing, stating your reasons to the regulating body, the Information Commissioner's Office.
Contact details: http://www.ico.gov.uk/ or 0303 123 1113 or Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
