Correspondence between CCC Planning and National Grid regarding E/28634

The request was successful.

Dear Carmarthenshire Council,

In relation to Planning Application E/28634 (27.1m wind turbine at Pant Y Bryn) and concerns not properly responded to by the Council following the Planning Hearing of 14 January 2014, I would like a copy of all information that the Council sent to National Grid between 14 January 2014 and 7 March 2014 as well as all information received by the Council from National Grid in response.

You may recognise that portions of this request echo part of a previous search for information received from National Power in 2015 (along with details of the medium used to converse with a company that had been dead for more than thirteen years). The FOI administrator helpfully broadened the search to capture National Grid (correcting erroneous information supplied by the Planning department). The Council stated that an email had been sent to National Grid and "No reply was received", and that declaration was accepted in good faith.

More recently a Senior Development Manager in the Planning department made a written claim that "an acknowledgement was received from National Grid". This directly contradicts the response provided (which was was subject to disclosure under the Environmental Information Regulations).

I hope that you will be able to complete this request swiftly.

Yours faithfully,

D Morris
