Dear Mr Bagnall,

 

I refer to your request for information dated 21/04/2019.

 

Request:

 

Dear West Suffolk Council,

 

Reference outline planning application DC/19/0547/OUT

 

Within that application the Biodiversity document
BIODIVERSITY_SURVEY_AND_REPORT-1564285 appears to have large parts
redacted.

 

In the interest of openness and to ensure a fair consultation please
supply an unredacted version of the document.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

David Bagnall

 

 

Response:

 

We are unable to provide an unredacted version of this document to you, as
under Regulation 12 (5) (g) of the Environmental Information Regulations
2004 (EIR) the disclosure of the information would adversely affect the
protection of the environment to which the information relates. In this
particular case the information has been redacted due to the Protection of
Badgers Act 1992. In addition, we have considered whether it would be in
the public interest to disclose this information but taking into account
the protection of the environment, it is considered that the public
interest in maintaining the exception, defined in the EIR 2004, outweighs
the public interest in disclosure.

 

 

 

 

If you are unhappy with this response you may request an internal review
of this matter via the Council’s corporate complaints procedure.

 

If, after an internal review, you are still unhappy with the decision, you
have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner at the following
address:

 

Information Commissioner’s Office

Wycliffe House

Water Lane

Wilmslow

Cheshire SK9 5AF

Tel: 01625 545 745

Fax: 01625 524 510

Yours sincerely

 

 

FOI Coordinator
