Dear Caerphilly County Borough Council,

Thank you for your request for clarification. You will understand the inherent difficulty in asking for your records to be pre-filtering by those who do not have purview over them. However, it seems reasonable to accept your request at face value and give a little extra guidance.

For the avoidance of doubt and to answer your question directly, you ask, "Can you please clarify what you mean by "your correspondence"?"; Correspondence has its dictionary meaning, both written and electronic.

Last year I requested information on the road over Mynydd Machen. In your reply, you mention various discussions and consultations. I later met with representatives of your Highways and Environmental Health departments, who again referred to discussing the matter internally and externally. Albeit the detail of the correspondence and with whom are largely unknown. Accordingly, I would like to understand more about these.

If it helps in any way, I am interested in,
-correspondence to and from your Highways Department,
- (separately) correspondence to and from your Environmental Health Department.
They will undoubtedly be able to provide a timescale for the obstructions and indicate who they were in discussion.

Whilst I understand the request for clarification, it is worth mentioning that the roads in question are minor are unlikely to have generated a great deal of correspondence. Consequently, I am confident my original terms of request identify the particular thing I wish to know more about and will not result in work above that permitted by the 2000 Act.

Yours sincerely,
Mr Jones
