Report on the Usability of the Stonehenge Permissive Path on the route of the old A344

Tim Daw made this Freedom of Information request to Wiltshire Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Wiltshire Council,

In October I requested ( https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/u... ) "the criteria used for judging the suitableness of the state of establishment for use as a path " of the old A344 past Stonehenge.

I didn't receive a reply to this part of my request.

I gather that since then on 17th November 2016 Fiona Elphick, (Senior Ecologist, Landscape & Design Team), has had sight of a report provided by English Heritage to Adam Madge (Team Leader (South) Development Management, Economic Development and Planning) written by (her words) " an independent ecologist/botanist" which provides the details I was looking for and has been used as the basis for the council's judgement.

Please could you provide me with a copy of this report and any other reports that have been used to judge the suitability of the surface of the old A344 this year.

I would note in passing that my previous FOI requests have not been answered in a timely manner and would note that I have provided enough detail for this report to be provided within a couple of days. As the ICO says: "The obligation to respond promptly means that an authority should comply with a request as soon as is reasonably practicable, Whilst this is linked to the obligation to respond within 20 working days, it should be treated as a separate requirement."

Yours faithfully,

Tim Daw

FOI, Wiltshire Council
