ATISN 16169: FOI Request: Department of Climate Change Soil Evidence Programme
Thank you for your request which I received on 16 March 2022. You asked for:
The Welsh Government embarked on a work stream to assess the impact of solar farms on soils. Work packages 1 and 2 have been completed and work is underway on Work Package 3 relating to impacts.
Please disclose all correspondence and evidence provided with respect to Work package 3 or the draft report which has been produced by ADAS and submitted to the Welsh Government.
Following a search of our paper and electronic records, I have established that all correspondence were released under ATISN 15739 and the remaining information you require is not held by the Welsh Government.
If you are dissatisfied with the Welsh Government’s handling of your request, you can ask for an internal review within 40 working days of the date of this response. Requests for an internal review should be addressed to the Welsh Government’s Freedom of Information Officer at: Information Rights Unit, Welsh Government, Cathays Park, Cardiff, CF10 3NQ or Email: Freedom.firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember to quote the ATISN reference number above.
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
Information Commissioner’s Office,
However, please note that the Commissioner will not normally investigate a complaint until it has been through our own internal review process.
