FOI request (FOIR-154823277)
Farm inspections in last 12 months
Requested Mon 04 November 2019
Responded Wed 13 November 2019
I would be grateful if you could treat this request as a freedom of information request (or a request made under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, if this is deemed more appropriate).
1. How many farms in your jurisdiction have been inspected by your department on animal welfare grounds in the last 12 months and, in each case, what triggered the inspection (e.g. complaint from the public, complaint from another government department, complaint from the RSPCA, etc.)
2. How many of those inspections led to legal action being taken against a farm.
I do not require the names of the farms, any personal details or specific details of the complaints.
I would also be grateful if you could tell me how many farms which rear animals (of any kind) are currently operating in your jurisdiction.
This area is dealt with by East Sussex County Council Animal Welfare, please visit their website for further information: www.eastsussex.gov.uk
