Christopher Banks

Dear Sport England,

I am requesting a digital copy of the 2015 and 2016 submitted funding bid by Bolton Council for the development of a speed circuit on 'New House Farm Playing Field' Breightmet, Bolton. Any documents, paper or digital that are relevant to this submission I am also requesting copies of those. Digital copies are preferred.

The planning application was previously '95067/15' and now it is '96166/16'.

Stating my reasons for this request. I am a local resident, who like others have found it difficult to obtain the full facts regarding this development. Local residents need to be presented with the full factual data to make informed decisions about this proposed development.

Yours faithfully,

Christopher Banks

Dear Mr Banks,

Thank you for your recent email requesting a copy of the funding bid
submitted by Bolton Council for the development of a speed circuit on New
House Farm Playing Field, Bolton.

We have considered your request carefully and I am now writing to let you
know that Sport England does not hold the information you have requested.
This is because the project you are referring to has not been funded
directly by Sport England. As such, no funding applications have been
submitted to us. We understand that British Cycling are currently in
discussion with the council but have not yet made any commitment to
funding the project.

As you may be aware Sport England has been consulted on the planning
application in question. At the present time we have issued a 'holding
objection' whilst additional information about the proposals are obtained.

This completes our response to your information request.

As a public body, Sport England is subject to the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and this means you are entitled to complain if you
are unhappy with the way we have handled your information request.

If you would like to complain about the way we have handled your request
or ask for our decision to be reviewed please contact:

Please describe your original request, explain your grounds for
dissatisfaction and include an address for correspondence. We aim to
complete internal reviews within twenty working days.

If you are not content with the outcome of our Internal Review you have
the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner. Generally speaking
the Information Commissioner will not be able to consider an appeal unless
you have first exhausted the Internal Review procedure provided by Sport
