Information on your Green Belt Reviews - Stage 1, 2 and Report on Additions to the Green Belt

Currently waiting for a response from Bath and North East Somerset Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Bath and North East Somerset Council,

As part of your Local Plan Examination, I note that you had three reports, for Stage 1, Stage 2 and a Report on Additions to the Green Belt compiled by Arup for your Green Belt Review sometime in 2013.

I would please like to know the following information, hence my request:

1. Why there was need for 3 seperate Green Belt Review reports for your authority?
2. Did your local authority do any preliminary GBR work, prior to Arups starting the contract?
2. Have you got an available (spare) copy, (either electronic or hard copy) that you could send me, of the actual agreement and/or contract you entered into with Arup, complete with actual site investigation reports and the actual methodology used on the identified GBR sites?
3. Did you fnd the ARUP methodology easy to understand and implement befiore and after the Local Plan was adopted?
4. Do you have any other GBR information available that could be useful, including actual meetings and costs incurred?
5. How did you find out about Arup's and were you completely satisfied with the way that Arup's carried out the work and would you recommend them to another LA?

Yours faithfully,

John H Earnshaw
