Dear Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council,
Trafford Council recently imposed service deductions/fines against Amey Plc in relation to service levels and KPI's. The total fines exceeded £1 million in total.
My FOI relates to:
1. Has the full payment been received Amey, if not what payment has been made to date and when will the remaining payments be made.?
2. Will the total amount received from the fines be ring fenced for highways and waste management..?
3. What is the spending plan/budget for how the total amount of money will be reinvested..?
4. What consultation process will be undertaken to ensure local residents are aware of your plans to reinvest the £1 million pounds and to gain feedback and comments ahead of you implementing plans..?

The 2016/17 deductions are allocated to an environmental project – namely
