Dear Dr Jim Conboy

 

Thank you for your enquiry dated 02 April 2019 regarding the Pile Load

Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

Please refer to [2]Open Government Licence which explains the permitted

There were 9 draft documents attached to the correspondence requested.
They are unfinished documents and contain incomplete data. EIR Regulation

To release information at this stage would not be in the public interest
as it is not the final most up-to-date version of the document. Therefore
we are withholding the 9 draft documents. Please contact us at a later
date if you require the final versions of any documents.
