Information requested

correspondence in relation to Para 49 of Intentions notice, re Hyndford Quarry. NOD/SLS/001-1


I enclose a copy of all of the information you requested.

Please note exceptions under regulation 11(2) (personal data belonging to a third party) applies to the information given in your response. The reason why that exception applies is explained in the Annex to this letter. In addition, within document 25 there has been some information redacted as it simply falls out of scope against the information you have requested.

Reasons for not providing information - Annex
An exception applies

11(2) – Applicant has asked for personal data of a third party
An exception under regulation 11(2) of the EIRs (personal information) applies to some the information requested because it is personal data of a third party and disclosing it would contravene the data protection principles in Article 5(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation and in section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018. This exception is not subject to the ‘public interest test’, so we are not required to consider if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exception.
