Dear Mr Keenan
You will recall that some weeks ago we spoke regarding the above case which was previously being handled by Aubrey McCrory.
I am writing to confirm that this case has now been formally allocated to me and
I have carried out a review of the case file.? I am today writing to the public authority
to clarify a few outstanding issues regarding the exceptions they have cited under the
Environmental Information Regulations 2004.?
Once I have received a response to these queries I will be in a position to finalise
the drafting of a Decision Notice.? Whilst I cannot be specific regarding the timescale
for completing this case I expect that
the Decision Notice is unlikely to issue until early in the New Year.?
I apologise for the delay you have experienced in the handling of this case to date, which has been the result of rather extenuating circumstances.? However please be assured that I will endeavour to expedite proceedings from this point forward.
