Cost & Suitability of planned Range for shooting at 2012 Olympics

Albie Fox made this Freedom of Information request to Government Olympic Executive

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Sir or Madam,

In view of the significant increases in cost estimates for very many of the Olympic Games sites, could you please let me know:

What is the current estimate for building and dismantling the shooting ranges in Woolwich?

Has the advice of experts, that the outdoor conditions at Woolwich are totally detrimental to accurate shooting, been considered in the recent deliberations?

Please state the legacy for shooting sports that will be left after the games.

Yours faithfully,

Albie Fox
Sportsman's Association

Dear Sir or Madam,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Government Olympic Executive's handling of my FOI request 'Cost & Suitability of planned Range for shooting at 2012 Olympics'.

My request is time sensitive as I am endeavouring to save the taxpayer approximately £30m of the cost of the 2012 Olympics

Following problems communicating with the Government Olympic Executive requests for information from the GOE are now being sent to the freedom of information team at the Department of Culture Media and Sport. The rationale for this is based on the fact the GOE is part of DCMS and the DCMS central disclosure log contains information relating to the GOE.
