Dear Ms Fortune -apologies if you have received multiple acknowledgements from me, I have tried to recall them. The system incorrectly generated target dates which I have now corrected. The correct target date for the response below is the 16th August.

Dear Alistair Rice,

You will notice that Pucklechurch is mentioned only once in this document which was written in March, and which runs to sixty pages.
 
A document that references Pucklechurch once does not actually answer my question and I am not satisfied as I specifically asked about the decision criteria involved in developing the two options.

For example, where does it outline the impact on bio diversity within the green belt set in the Pucklechurch and Syston Parish boundaries, and how does it justify the additional journey length from the businesses sited at Lyde Green to Pucklechurch?

Please can you highlight to me the specific pages that set out the impact assessment carried out in respect of the Pucklechurch option and the decision criteria that resulted in Pucklechurch being chosen, as I have to confess, I am struggling to find it in the documentation you have provided.

Maybe it's because I'm just not that bright, but I'm sure with your help I will be able to find what I am looking for.

Yours sincerely,

Margaret Fortune
