Dear Leicestershire County Council,

Please let me have a copy of carbon emission data associated with the whole life cycle of materials, energy use and construction of the following road:

Melton Mowbray Eastern Distributor Road

This is sometimes referred to as “embodied carbon”.
For the avoidance of doubt this is not a request for carbon emissions data directly related to the use of the road by all kinds of vehicles over the 60 year assessment period.

Please let me know if these assessments of carbon were carried out following guidance contained in PAS2080 Carbon Management in Infrastructure and which organisation or consultancy /consultancies carried out the assessment.

If one part of the request can be answered sooner than others, please send that information first followed by any subsequent data. If you need further clarification, please contact me.

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Kris Welch,

Dear Mr Welch,


Your request has been handled under the Environmental Information
Regulations 2004, not the Freedom of Information Act 2000, as the
information sought falls under the definition of environmental
information, and as such, is exempt from the Freedom of Information Act
2000 by virtue of S.39. Instead, it falls under the Environmental
Information Regulations 2004.

Your request has now been considered and our response is attached.

If you have any difficulty in accessing the information, please contact us
by replying to this email.

If you are not happy with how we’ve dealt with your request, you can
complain and ask us to review our decision. If this is the case, please

submitted to us within two months (from the date of this email).
