The request was successful.

Dear Natural England,

I am requesting information under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 regarding communications between Natural England and the applicant(s)/holder(s) of great crested newt mitigation licences for the land known as Kingmoor Park Industrial Estate, Land North of Kings Drive, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA6 4SE since 2016. I understand a licence numbered 2017-29917-EPS-MIT-2 was granted (valid from 17 December 2020). I am also aware that a previous licence had been issued but I do not know the licence number.

1. Please provide all records of communications between Natural England and applicant(s)/holder(s) of newt mitigation licence(s) since 2016 including any emails, written correspondence, telephone conversations, video calls, meetings and text messages.

2. Please provide all licence numbers of currently valid newt mitigation licences for the land known as Kingmoor Park Industrial Estate, Land North of Kings Drive, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA6 4SE.

Thank you for your assistance and your time.

Dear Kate,

Thank you for the information. I request that Natural England carry out an internal review and check that no information has been missed from the information response. In particular:

1. The email (or other communication) from the applicant originally requesting the change to the licence (this is referred to in the email dated 10 November 2020).

2. The attachments (if any) to this request from the applicant.

3. The Work Schedule included in the email dated 17 December 2020 from the Natural England Wildlife Licensing Service.

4. The submission checklist for licence modification (also included in the email dated 17 December 2020) from the Natural England Wildlife Licensing Service.

5. The "charge screening form" received on 10 November 2020 referred to in the email dated 11 November 2020.

6. The covering email containing this "charge screening form" (if not already included).

7. The attachment WSFortumKingmoor v10 Modified.docx to the email dated 16 December 2020.

8. The attachment OP Response Letter 13-12-20.docx to the email dated 15 December 2020.

9. The attachment WSFortumKingmoor v9 Modified.docx to the email dated 15 December 2020.

10. I note that the emails dated 11 February 2021 and 15 February 2021 refer to an interim report. Please include this interim report and any other associated emails if these have been received and are held by Natural England.

11. Any emails (if held) and their attachments (if any) both from the applicant and Natural England in relation to the first licence 2017-29917-EPS-MIT.

12. Licence document 2017-29917-EPS-MIT.

13. The OS Grid reference on License 2017-29917-EPS-MIT-2. If Natural England considers the redaction to be correct, please explain.

14. The Company Name and Address that the 2017-29917-EPS-MIT-2 license was granted to. Whilst appreciating that it can be appropriate to redact the names of individuals in responses to information requests, it is in the public interest that the companies holding such important licences are not withheld. The public also needs to be able to check that the licence holder does indeed have the qualifications, skills and experience necessary to fulfil their obligations so that the public can be confident that the systems in place are adequate for the protection of wildlife and the environment. The public should know what companies are receiving these licences especially when a complaint has been received (see email dated 11 February 2021).

15. The redacted company names and addresses in the information relating to 2017-29917-EPS-MIT (e.g. in 2017-29917-EPS-MIT-Work Schedule-Redacted). Most/all of the files in relation 2017-29917-EPS-MIT have such information redacted. See above for public interest reasons for the release of this information.

Thank you for your help.

Yours sincerely,

Dear SM-NE-FOI (NE),

Thank you for the information you sent.

The document "Annex 2017-29917-EPS-MIT-2" refers to the figures D 25/07/2017; E2 25/07/2017; E3.1 20/09/2017; E3.3 20/09/2017; E4a 25/07/2017; E5.1 20/09/2017; E5.2 13/12/2020 and F1 20/09/2017.

There is a similar set of figures referred to by the document "Annex 2017-29917-EPS-MIT-2".

Document "2017-29917-EPS-MIT-Method Statement - F, G, H Sums and Figures_Redacted" refers to various figures and photos which are ticked as included: C3.2a, C3.2b, C3.4, D, E2, E3.1, E3.3, E4a, E5.1, E5.2 and F.

Figure E5.2 v7 has been included but I have not found the other figures/photos in the information sent. Presumably these figures/photos must have been supplied by the applicant so will be within the scope of this information request. Please supply the missing figures/photos.

Yours sincerely,

D Mudge

Dear D Mudge

 

Thank you for email dated 27 May 2021.

 

Please find below Natural England’s response to the points you have raised
within your email relating to your request RFI 5500.

 

1. The document "Annex 2017-29917-EPS-MIT-2" refers to the figures D
25/07/2017; E2 25/07/2017; E3.1 20/09/2017; E3.3 20/09/2017; E4a
25/07/2017; E5.1 20/09/2017; E5.2 13/12/2020 and F1 20/09/2017.

There is a similar set of figures referred to by the document "Annex
2017-29917-EPS-MIT-2".

We can confirm the document referring to the figures above for Licence
2017-29917-EPS-MIT-2 are the same figures as for Licence
2017-29917-EPS-MIT-1 because they have not been altered.

 

2. Document "2017-29917-EPS-MIT-Method Statement - F, G, H Sums and
Figures_Redacted" refers to various figures and photos which are ticked as
included: C3.2a, C3.2b, C3.4, D, E2, E3.1, E3.3, E4a, E5.1, E5.2 and F.

Figure E5.2 v7 has been included but I have not found the other
figures/photos in the information sent.  Presumably these figures/photos
must have been supplied by the applicant so will be within the scope of
this information request.   Please supply the missing figures/photos.

We have established the information above relating to Figure E5.2 v7 is
not held due to the figures not being altered and therefore no
figures/photos were supplied by the applicant.

 

Regards

Kate

Dear Ms Donovan,

Thank you for confirming that the figures for Licence 2017-29917-EPS-MIT-2 are the same figures as for Licence
2017-29917-EPS-MIT-1 but I cannot find the figures these documents refer to. "Annex - 2017-29917-EPS-MIT-1.pdf" and "Annex 2017-29917-EPS-MIT-2.pdf" do not contain these figures. I have looked through all the other PDF documents and I cannot find the figures.

Please email me the figures or tell me in which PDF document they can be found.

Thanks for your help.

Dear D Mudge

 

Thank you for your email dated 03 June 2021.

 

Please find attached the figures and photos relating to Licence
2017-29917-EPS-MIT-1 provided in the zip file.

 

The only explanation on why these documents might not be found in the
previously information sent to you was because they were embedded within
the pdf documents.
