Dear Julia

RE: Biomass UK No1 Hull Energy production
Request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) /
Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR)

Thank you for your enquiry which was received on 04 March 2018 for:

“copies of the commissioning plan and commissioning report, including
related reports, documents, minutes and emails held by the Environment
Agency for Biomass UK No1 Hull Energy production.”
 

In response we have attached the commissioning plan documents and our
Compliance Assessment Report dated 26 September 2017. Please see the Open
Government Licence ([1]here) for details of permitted use of this
information.

 

With regard to your request for minutes and emails related to the
commissioning plan and commissioning report, we have considered your
request under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 /
Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR). The Act requires that we
respond to requests by advising you whether or not information is held,
and if so by providing you with that information.

EIR Regulation 3(2) states that information is held if it is in our
possession and has been produced or received by us, or it is held by
another person on our behalf at the time the request is received.

 

Information not held

In this case, some of the information you have requested is not held by
the Environment Agency, and we are therefore partially refusing your
request on the grounds that there is no information we can provide.

 

Where a request is for environmental information, the Regulations allow us
to refuse to disclose it if the exception at EIR Regulation 12(4)(a)
applies. The regulation states that a public authority may refuse to
disclose environmental information to the extent that it does not hold
that information when an applicant’s request is received.

 

It is not possible for us to conduct a public interest balancing test
because the reason for non-disclosure is that the information is not
held. 

 

Rights of appeal

If you are not satisfied you can contact us within 2 calendar months to
ask for our decision to be reviewed. We shall review our response to your
request and give you our decision in writing within 40 working days.

 

If you are still not satisfied following this, you can raise a concern
with the Information Commissioner, who is the statutory regulator for
Freedom of Information and the Environmental Information Regulations.  The
contact details are:

 

Information Commissioner’s Office

Wycliffe House

Water Lane

Wilmslow

Cheshire

SK9 5AF

Tel: 0303 123 1113

If you require any further help, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely
