The request was successful.

Dear Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council,
I would like to see the environmental impact report, on the demolition of the galleries shopping precinct, has the carbon stored in the existing buildings been taken into account, has the impact of the amount of landfill been calculated. And has the impact of the demolition job itself ie machinery and transport been calculated, and have all the above been added to the overall impact of the new buildings to be erected.

Yours faithfully,

T F Jones

We will respond as soon as possible and in most cases no later than 20

The Information Commissioner’s Office has recognised the unprecedented

The Council does not charge for most FOI requests, but charges may be made

and packaging, and only if these charges amount to more than £20.00. If a
charge is to be made, confirmation of the payment due will be given before

Dear FoI Request,
I want to know if the cost and environmental impact of demolishing the existing Galleries complex has been weighed against the repurposing of the site, using the existing structures which would be more environmentally friendly. Which would be the more cost effective of these two alternatives in terms of money and in terms of carbon footprint. If these figures are not available why have these studies not been done, or when are they going to be done.

Yours sincerely,

TF Jones
