The Welsh Government does not hold copies of the information you requested under points 1, 2, 3, 6 & 7. However, I believe that the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority holds the information which you are seeking for 1, 2, 3 and 7, while Monmouthshire County Council holds the information for point 6. You can ask them for the information at:
Monmouthshire County Council
PO Box 106
Brecon Beacons National Park Authority
Plas y Ffynnon
Or I can transfer your request to them. Please inform me in writing if you would like me to transfer your request.
In response to:
Pages 3 and 4 of the SHG application were included in my response dated 9th March 2012. These were the fourth and fifth attachments of my email. I have attached them again for information (docs 2 & 3).
There is no separate application for Recycled Capital Grant (RCG). This figure is included on page 3 of the scheme 1 form part 15 and it is the association confirming that they can use their RCG to support the scheme, subject to the agreement of Monmouthshire County Council.
I have decided that the supplementary cost report from Davis Langdon is exempt from disclosure under section 43 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Section 43 of the FOIA allows for information to be withheld from disclosure where it would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of any person. Annex 1 contains a full explanation for the use of this exemption.
The revised plan has been submitted for approval to Brecon Beacons National Park Authority and is awaiting approval. A hard copy is enclosed.
Where possible we have provided you with the documents you have requested. Your letters have also included a number of questions that are not covered by the Freedom of Information Act and we will answer these shortly.
The request you sent me contains personal data about you - for example, your name and email address. I will only use this personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 to deal with your request and any matters which arise as a result of it. I will keep your personal data and all other information relating to your request for three years from the date on which your request is finally closed. Your personal data will then be disposed of securely.
Any information released under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or Environmental Information Regulations 2004 will be listed in the Welsh Government’s Disclosure Log.
If you believe that I have not followed the relevant laws, or you are unhappy with this response, you may request an internal review by writing to:
When dealing with any concerns, we will follow the principles set out in the Welsh Government’s Code of Practice on Complaints which is available on the Internet at www.wales.gov.uk or by post.
