Dear Department for Communities and Local Government,

On 13 April 2011 DCLG ministers according to a press release issued by DCLG the same day entitled Time for F airplay on Planning announced measures to improve the provision of traveller sites.

One of the measures was:

Dale Farm funding- Ministers have confirmed today that the department will provide up to £1.2m for Basildon Council to clear the unauthorised pitches on the Green Belt at the Dale Farm traveller site, given the exceptional nature of the case.

Please provide copies of all correspondence between DCLG and Basildon Council relating to this initiative.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart Hardwicke Carruthers

Dear Vicky Reville,

The first part of the request has been met. This related to exchanges of information between Basildon and CLG.

The information led to an additional request in relation to identification of treasury authority being provided for the expenditure.

I am aware that the issues in all probability relate to complicated public interest issues. I would hope that these issues are dealt with fairly..

Yours sincerely,

Stuart Hardwicke CARRUTHERS
