2. Of these TVG applications returned in 1, for how many was the Planning Inspectorate's opinion that the TVG application was excluded? In other words that a trigger event had occurred with no closing event.

4. For the TVG applications returned in 3, please supply details of location, LA decision on the application and any appeal details i.e. court reference and outcome.

Dear Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council,

May I remind you that by law you are required to respond promptly and by 14 Sept 2020 (20 days). I realise that we are in Covid times but many other authorities have managed to reply and well within 20 days.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir

Information Request

I am writing to advise you that the time limit for responding to your request for information under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, which we received on 16th August 2020, needs to be extended.

The Regulations allow us 20 working days to respond to your request from the date of its receipt. However, it is occasionally necessary to extend the 20 working day time limit for issuing a response. In this case, I regret that we must extend the time limit for responding by 20 working days, However I am hoping to get this information to you before then. We are still operating within the confines of limited resources during the Covid 19 situation together with the fact that BCP Council is a newly formed authority, so we are relying on the three legacy authority records which does unfortunately slow the process down but will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.

I hope to let you have a response before or by 12th October 2020, and will keep you informed of any further delay.

If you are dissatisfied with this response you can ask for an internal review. The purpose of an internal review is to assess how your Freedom of Information request was handled in the first instance and to determine whether the original response provided met with the requirements of the legislation. You can request an internal review by email to BCP Council Enquiries [email address]. You should make a review request within 40 working days of this response.

If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the Council’s review you have the right to refer the matter to the Information Commissioner’s Office. Contact details for the Information Commissioner can be found at: https://ico.org.uk/

Yours sincerely
