Habitat Destruction, Treloar Heights, Alton, Hants

BillEllson made this Freedom of Information request to Homes England

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Homes and Communities Agency,

I was disturbed to see a press report:
http://www.alton-herald-today.co.uk/arti...
relating to habitat destruction on land owned by the Agency at Treloar Heights, Alton, Hampshire. I was even more disturbed to read that the Agency is under the apparent misapprehension that it is possible to destroy the habitat and food source of dozens of insects without harming said insects.

I require the following information:
1. A copy of the tenancy or license or suchlike under which the land is currently let out by the Agency.
2. A copy of the Agency press release or other communication that the press article linked to was quoting from.
3. Copies of any and all correspondence in whatever format relating to the allowing or permitting the use of herbicide at the site.
3. Details of the herbicide used including quantities used, dilutions etc.
4. Details of professional advice sought from suitably qualified persons, such as an entomologist, before (apparently) claiming that you can destroy the habitat and food source of dozens of insects without harming said insects.

Yours faithfully,

BillEllson
