Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council,

The joint DC/BCP strategic review of the Green Belt includes the following note :-

" The harm assessments, presented in the second stage of the review, have been considered when assessing whether there could be 'exceptional circumstances' for changes to Green Belt boundaries."

It is also understood that further details will be presented about the approach to development in the green Belt in a specific background paper as part of the relevant consultations relating to Local Plans in Dorset. I cannot find any such paper. Is it still envisaged and awaited ? If so, is there any planned delivery date for the paper ?

Yours faithfully,

Gerald Rigler

The purpose of an internal review is to assess how your Freedom of Information request was handled in the first instance and to determine whether the original response provided met with the requirements of the legislation. You can request an internal review by email to BCP Council Enquiries [email address]. You should make a review request within 40 working days of this response.

Dear GI RFI,

Thank you for passing my question on to Dorset Council, since you are not involved in the matter.

It is regretted that the matter has been left to that Council since 'usage details' are a matter of subjective opinion that therefore require maximum opinions to be properly harnessed, rather that the reverse.

Yours sincerely,

Gerald Rigler
