Dear Gerald Rigler

 

Thank you for your email dated 24 February 2021.

 

As the request is for that of opinion/advice, we feel that this would be
better suited as a direct request to the Spatial Planning Team and not
that of FOI/EIR. Questions of this nature can be sent to :
[1][email address]

 

Alternatively, and with your permission, I will be happy to send the
details to the relevant officer and ask that they respond direct.

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear Freedom of Information,

Thank you Rebecca. I am seeking a substantial answer to my request for information and I do not mind how the Council produces a meaningful answer which is awaited with interest.

Yours sincerely,

Gerald Rigler

Dear Dorset Council,

It is noted that a definitive answer to this request has not yet been given. It is assumed that such information was not available (within Dorset Council) at the time. In accordance with Section 16 of the Act when is the requested information likely to become available ?

Yours faithfully,

Gerald Rigler

Dear Mr Rigler

 

Thank you for your email dated 10 May 2021 in regard to your query; Need
for large family dwellings

 

A response was sent to you on 24 March 2021, which I attach for your
reference. As the request was for that of opinion/advice, it was felt that
this would be better suited as a direct request to the Spatial Planning
Team and not that of FOI/EIR.

 

It is my understanding that our Strategic Planning Manager has been trying
to contact you to discuss this matter, and others you have submitted, but
has not been able to speak directly with you. If there is a more
convenient or suitable time for him to arrange contact with you, he would
be most happy to set aside time to discuss the matters further. Please do
not hesitate to contact me so that I can pass on any details.

 

I hope this is of some help to you.

 

Yours sincerely
