Dear Forestry Commission,

On the 3 April 2015, I made an FOI request of the Forestry Commission for
- a copy of the application for the felling licence at Bickerton Hill - Reference 010/131/13-14
- copies of correspondence relating to this application
- documentation related to the screening of this application in the determination of whether an Environmental Impact Assessment and environment statement was required for this area that is designated a SSSI
- the reasons why the Forestry Commission decided that an Environmental Impact Assessment and environment statement were not required to grant the felling licence.

By law, the Forestry Commission should have responded by now, although I have heard nothing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Mark Fisher

Barker, Richard, Forestry Commission

Dear Mr Fisher

Thank you for contacting us about your non-receipt of the information you requested.

The attached was sent to your 'whatdotheyknow' contact details on 24 April. This is the first time that we have been notified that something we have sent to 'whatdotheyknow' has not been received by the person requesting the information.

If this does not appear on the web site early next week I will send it again.

Yours sincerely

Dear Barker, Richard,

Thank you for your response. It is a puzzle why the information did not appear earlier.

The clarification in regard to correspondence that you ask for is that it should include all correspondence between the FC, the applicant and third parties, including Natural England, up to the date of issue of the licence.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Fisher
