Dear Conor,

I'm writing with reference to your recent Freedom of Information request, Ref:ATI2159.

While we endeavour to respond to such requests within 20 working days, in this instance the scope of your request is significant and spans multiple departments across the MMO. As a result, it is taking longer than anticipated to collate the information you've asked for and, unfortunately, this means we'll be unable to supply this data by the original deadline of 27th September. We do, however, hope to issue a full response no later than 4th October.

Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Kind regards,

Craig West | Communications Officer | Communications | Business Development and Transformation | Marine Management Organisation (MMO)
