From: Shlomo Dowen

8 November 2012

Dear Gloucestershire County Council,

I have read
http://www.thisisgloucestershire.co.uk/A...
which has made me aware that there is a strong public interest in
better understanding the handling of the incinerator planning
application.

Under the Environmental Information Regulations I request
electronic copies of all correspondence and other information held,
e.g. notes of telephone conversations and meetings, etc., produced
between 1st September 2012 and the present day, relating to:

1. The changing of planning officer for planning application
12/0008/STMAJW;

2. The handling of application 12/0008/STMAJW, including
correspondence relating to the tendering, appointment, remit and
operation of any replacement planning officer or persons or
organisations (e.g. BPP Consulting) tasked with supporting the
handling of the planning committee meeting that would consider the
application, contributing to the review of
submissions/representations, the drafting of any report to the
committee, consideration of the application itself and/or what is
described in the newspaper article as "achieving the right
decision";

3. Media communication / public relations pertaining to application
12/0008/STMAJW, e.g. press releases, correspondence between
Gloucestershire County Council and the media, and internal 'lines
to take', as well as internal discussions relating to these; and

4. Any and all communications between Gloucestershire County
Council and BPP Consulting LLP, including any e-mail messages sent
or copied to any partner or employee of BPP.

Yours faithfully,

Shlomo Dowen
