Sellers, Lucy, Highways England Company Limited

Dear Stuart Hardwicke Carruthers,

 

I am writing regarding your request for information received on 13 January
2021. In that request, you asked us for “details of all land purchased by
Highways England Company Limited in Kent over the last six years”.

 

I will be unable to proceed with your request without clarification of the
information you wish to receive. To help us do so, I would like to know
what type of information you are referring to when you say “details”,
please.

 

Please note that if I do not receive appropriate clarification of your
information requirements within three months from the date of this email,
then I will consider your request closed.

 

I would also note that your request is very broadly drafted and is likely
to cover a lot of information. Section 12 of the Freedom of Information
Act does not oblige us to comply with requests if they exceed a cost limit
of £450 to cover the time spent compiling the response. I would therefore
suggest that you may wish to limit your request to a particular Highways
England road scheme (see
[1]https://highwaysengland.co.uk/our-work/s... for more
information) and/or to a shorter time period.

 

Finally, you may also wish to consult with Land Registry, as they register
land and property transactions in England and Wales.

 

If you wish to discuss any of the above, please contact me. Please
remember to quote reference number FOI 101725 in any future
communications.

 

Kind regards,

 

Lucy Sellers
