Dear Ms. Bolshakova,
I write to report a problem with implementing
the Aarhus Convention in the UK. Briefly, there
is some information about trees, which is held by
a public body, that is being kept secret. I have
been trying for almost two years to obtain the
information, without success. The information is
supposed to be released under UK Environmental
Information Regulations: the Regulations are how
the stipulations of the Convention were enacted.
More details are at
My belief is that the failure of the UK to release the information constitutes a breach of the Convention.
If you have recommendations on how I should proceed, or would be willing to assist in any way, I would be much appreciative.
