Dear Freedom of Information,
EIR Request ref: 6281 / Groombridge Highways and Surface water drainage system.

This request for information should have been replied to promptly and by your own admission by 18/11/15, it is therefore overdue, which I understand is in breach of the legislation.
Please advise me when I can expect the information to be supplied.

RESPONSE

 

The Drainage Team have advised we currently do not hold the information
you are requesting. We are however looking into trying to put a map
together to show this information. I have attached snapshots of the
Groombridge area which shows the drains. 

 

The Flood Risk Management Team have also suggested that the Environment
Agency may hold some of the information you are requesting. If you have
not already written to them, they can be contacted on:

I hope that this answers your enquiry. If you believe that the County
Council has not complied with the EIR in responding to your request, you
may ask for an internal review. If you wish to do so, please set out the
grounds of your appeal in writing to:

particular request.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you then
have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. Generally, the Information Commissioner cannot make a decision
