Dear Ms Foster,

Thank you for your enquiry.

Dear Sirs,

Thank you for your response.

I note that the council do hold the plans and abuilding gent details for this hospital as I have seen various planning applications for building works within the building but the councils online planning portal does not have the applications or documents from the 1960s. Due to their date I am assuming they have been archived, are you able to deal with that part of the initial request (plans)?

Many thanks

Yours sincerely,

Rebecca Foster

Freedom of Information Act,

Dear Ms Foster,

Further to my previous email we have now forwarded your enquiry to the appropriate officers for a response. The usual timescale for a response is twenty working days, that is by or on 1st February.

If for any reason the Council needs to extend this timescale you will be notified in accordance with the relevant legislation.

Please note that in 2012 the County Council adopted a position in principle that FoI and EIR requests to West Sussex County Council and the Council's responses may be published on the Council's website in a suitably anonymised form. This is in addition to the individual response to the requestor, and in line with the Council's commitment to transparency and open data.

Yours sincerely,

Kerry Rickman

Dear Mrs Foster,

 

With regard to your email of 4 January and the subsequent emails from my
colleague, I have now been advised that as the information you seek
concerns planning applications, you will need to contact Chichester
District Council, as they would be the relevant planning authority. 

 

If, however, we have misunderstood your request, please do let us know.
 We will need that clarification before we can take the matter further.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Duncan Macdonald

Customer Relations Officer
