This exemption is subject to the 'public interest test'. Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption. We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemption, because there is no public interest in dealing with the same request under two different regimes. This is essentially a technical point and has no material effect on the outcome of your request.
While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested. Therefore we are refusing your request under the exception at regulation 10(4)(a) of the ElRs. The reasons why that exception applies are explained below.
Whilst I am unable to provide you with details of the accommodation works put in place for Bridgend Farm I can however provide you with information in relation to measures put in place to facilitate continued access.
Please also find below a copy of the A96 Trunk Road (Kintore Bypass) (Side Roads) Order 1995 (S.I. 1995 No.3111), along with an extract from the associated plan folio. You will note that new means of access "43" was constructed to provide continued access to the area of land in question from the new grade separated side roads alignment.
