Dear Ms Rimmer

 

Environmental Information Regulations 2004 – Extension of time – RFI 4191

 

I am writing to advise you that the time limit for responding to your
request for information under the Environmental Information Regulations,
which we received on 15 March 2018, 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 days to 16
May 2018, because of the volume and complexity of the request, although we
hope to reply sooner.

 

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. As you may
be aware, under the legislation should you have any concerns with the
service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request a review of our decision, please contact me and I’ll
arrange for a colleague to conduct an internal review. Under Regulation
11(2) this needs to be done no later than 40 working days after the date
of this letter.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of that complaint, or the review
of our decision, you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner
for a decision. Generally, the Commissioner cannot make a decision unless
you have exhausted the complaints procedure provided by Natural England.
The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: The Information
Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
5AF. Telephone: 01625 545 700, [1]www.ico.gov.uk.

 

Yours sincerely
