Dear Ms Broad,
Environmental Information Request Reference No: 201707222
Thank you very much for your prompt response.
However, I am extremely concerned at your information. Could you please inform me whether if the information I request exists, HSE would normally hold it ? Please let me know as a matter of urgency if the requested information might be available elsewhere. Could it be that the site was mis-spelt ? Some spell it as 'Daedulus' or 'Daedulas' ?
Does this lack of HSE having the above information indicate it does not exist ?
I contacted HSE upon the advice of both the Environmental Health Officer and the Head of Building Control of the relevant Council - Gosport Council. Initially I had contacted them for the information.
Head of Building Control also informed me ".. the main contractor, Hughes and Salvidge Ltd produced a construction phase plan for these demolition works which confirmed a detailed survey of each building was carried out by Envirochem. Any identified notifiable licensed and notifiable non licensed asbestos was scheduled to be removed prior to the demolition of each building. The contractor for the removal notifiable licensed asbestos was RH Insulation. ...."
The many demolished buildings contained asbestos, both notifiable and notifiable non licensed asbestos according to the initial survey included with the planning application. The resultant building demolition material, much in a finely crushed/pulverized state, is now in several huge stockpiles close to very many homes (including mine), offices and a museum.
For 7 months we have had, continue to have, dust laden air of stockpile dust blown over/in our properties. Our worries are great as you can imagine.
I very much look forward to hearing from you.
Yours faithfully,
Mrs Newsom

Your request was received on 22^nd July 2017 and I am dealing with it
under the terms of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

 

Having now searched the company names you provided I can confirm that the
Health and Safety Executive holds the following information:

 

1.     9 copies of Licenced Asbestos: Notification of Work Reports

 

The information supplied to you continues to be protected by the

to be protected by the copyright of the person, or the organisation, from
which the information originated. You must ensure that you gain their

Information numbered 1 is being withheld in part or in full, as it falls
under the exceptions in Regulation 13 personal data of the act and
Regulation 12(5)(e) Commercial Interests of the act.

 

Regulation 12(5)(e) is a qualified exception that is subject to the public

favouring disclosure against those favouring non-disclosure.         A
full explanation of my decision is given in the annex attached to this

Your request for Hughes and Salvidge Ltd construction plan and detailed

contact building control at Gosport Local Authority who may have the
information.

 

Our records show we do not hold any other information regarding Envirochem

Dear Mrs Newson

 

Thank you for your e-mail of the 3^rd August 2017 regarding your request
for information about Daedalus site – Lee on Solent.

 

In answer to points 2 and 3 of your email the Licensed asbestos contractor
clearance certificates (including air tests) and the related plan of work
and waste disposal records (waste transfer notes, etc.)  are held by the
contractor.  It is not HSE's policy to request these documents and
therefore I can confirm they are not held.

 

Regards
