Dear Mr Atkinson,
Without prejudice to the matters raised in my e-mail of the 24th
July 2013, I intend to place the Dart Access Arrangement under closer scrutiny.
If it is contended that I, either as member of CE or as a member of the public, have any obligations under the Dart Access Arrangement then as a matter of natural justice, probably under the laws of contract, and certainly under PD-PAC 4.4(4) following the request herein contained, I have a right to know to whom I may have these alleged obligations.
Could you please provide me with the details, including contact details, of all parties to the Dart Access Arrangement together with the details of the geographical extent of their interests.
If this information is in any way confidential this reduces the Dart Access Arrangement to a private contract between individual persons in CE and the other parties and so places no obligation on anyone who is not a party to the Dart Access Arrangement.
Alternatively you could make a statement confirming that no member of CE or member of the public is affected by the Dart Access Arrangement which may not modify the public right of navigation which is recognised by law, irrespective of time or place and according to the quality and capacity of the river.
PD-PAC requires that the requested information be supplied within 14 days of the date of this e-mail. Failure to give an adequate response within the requisite period will be taken as an admission that the Dart Access Arrangement is entirely void.
