Latest noise report conducted by Bear Scotland: EIR release

Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004.

Information requested

Please may I (under the relevant legislation) request all details of the last (or most recent) "acoustic survey" conducted by Bear Scotland.


Please see Annex A to this response for a copy of some of the information you requested. I also advise that this report is not in relation to the A835, but is the latest noise report carried out by BEAR Scotland.

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.
