Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50184503
  • Date: 25 March 2010
  • Public Authority: Department of the Environment (NI)
  • Summary: The complainant requested information relating to an application for planning permission for a housing development adjacent to an ancient woodland. The Department provided the complainant with access to its planning file, but the complainant was not satisfied that it contained all the information relevant to the request. The complainant requested that the Department conduct an internal review. Despite the Commissioner’s intervention the Department failed to conduct an internal review. Therefore the Commissioner’s decision is that the Department has failed to comply with the requirements of regulations 5(1), 11(3) and 11(4) of the EIR. Accordingly, the Commissioner now requires the Department to conduct an internal review which meets the requirements of the EIR.
