Correspondence about disused railway bridge

Lewes District Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Sir/Madam

On 10 September 2020, your planning team was sent a Permitted Development notification letter by Jacobs, agents acting on Highways England's behalf, regarding HGG2/1 “Church Lane” - a disused railway structure - and their intention to infill it.

Could you please provide me with all correspondence and documentation exchanged with Jacobs or Highways England about this structure and its proposed infilling?

Yours faithfully

Dear Mr. McArdle,

 

Information Request:  FOI 13292

 

Thank you for your information request dated 20 March 2021 received in our
office on the same day.

 

On 10 September 2020, your planning team was sent a Permitted Development
notification letter by Jacobs, agents acting on Highways England's behalf,
regarding HGG2/1 “Church Lane” - a disused railway structure - and their
intention to infill it.

Could you please provide me with all correspondence and documentation
exchanged with Jacobs or Highways England about this structure and its
proposed infilling?

 

I have reviewed your request and investigated whether there is any
information which can be disclosed to you and have found that Lewes
District Council does not hold the information you have requested.

 

Our investigations has shown that no response was sent. A process was
initiated on our system but as the original correspondence outlined that
some Crown Development permitted development would be undertaken the
officer at the time considered this was simply a notification letter not
warranting a response.

 

All applicants have a 'right to review'.  A review should be focused on
the original request and should identify how the council’s response failed
to answer your information request.  Reviews must be made in writing (or
e-mail) within 40 working days of receipt of this response and addressed
to the Information Governance Reviews Officer, to the address below.
