The request was partially successful.

Dear Environment Agency,

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations.
In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible.
If however this request is too wide or too unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the act, you are required to advise and assist requesters.
Please provide by electronic means the full waste disposal site licences and any subsequent amendments made for land in and around the former Empire Brickworks site, Stubbers Green Road , Aldridge, Walsall.
These relate to the former Leigh Interests Limited and associated subsidiaries, "the Mitco lagoon site" and also the so called "Sealosafe" process .

Could you also provide a summary of when these licences were surrendered and the site remediated if indeed this was the case?
I understand that under the act, I should be entitled to a response
within 20 working days. I would be grateful if you could confirm that you have received
this request. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future via the what do they know website address.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Carroll

Enquiry regarding historic site licences for former Empire Brickworks site
Stubbers Green, Walsall

 

Thank you for your enquiry which was received on

 

We respond to requests under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and
Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

 

We attach a copy of all the permits and associated modifications or
variations that we hold on our public register.  Unfortunately, we do any
paperwork relating to SL 46, 47, 50, 273 and 324, possible reasons for
this are:

 

Although a permit number (i.e. SL 46) has been allocated it may never have
been issued;

 

Prior to the Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994, a permit holder
could simply hand their permit back to the regulating authority, there was
no requirement to make an application to surrender the permit.  It may be
worth you contacting Mr Ian Jarrett at Walsall MBC, Environmental Health
Department who were the issuing authority to see if they have any details
on these permits.

 

SL 323 was never surrendered, Permit XP 3037SE supersedes parts of SL 323.

 

Please refer to [1]Open Government Licence  which explains the permitted
use of this information.

 

Please get in touch if you have any further queries or contact us within
two months if you’d like us to review the information we have sent.
