Dear Belfast City Council,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I would like to request data on roadworks carried out under your authority.

Can I please receive a total count of roadworks that the council carried out within the date ranges of:
01/04/2016 - 31/03/2017
01/04/2017 - 31/03/2018
01/04/2018 - 31/03/2019

If I could please receive this as a total count for each year individually that would be fantastic.

Yours faithfully,

Russ Hunter

FOI, Belfast City Council

Dear Mr Hunter

 

Thank you for your email dated 19 February 2020 requesting, under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000, a total count of roadworks carried out
each year from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2019.

 

I can confirm that Belfast City Council does not hold the information you
have requested.  This is because in Northern Ireland district councils,
such as Belfast City Council, are not responsible for road or highway
maintenance.

 

The Department for Infrastructure (DfI) is responsible for roadwork in
Northern Ireland.  You may, therefore, wish to redirect your request to
the DfI.  Their e-mail address is [email address].

 

If you are dissatisfied with how the Council handled your request for
information, you have the right to request that the Council formally
review this decision.  If you wish to do so, please write to the Records
Manager, Information Governance Unit, Legal and Civic Services, Belfast
City Council, City Hall, Belfast, BT1 5GS.

 

Should you remain dissatisfied following the Council’s internal review,
you can seek an independent review from the Information Commissioner. 
Requests for an independent review should be made in writing to: The
Information Commissioner, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire,
SK9 5AF.  However, I would advise you that the Information Commissioner
has indicated that a review will not be undertaken unless the Council has
first had an opportunity to re-consider its decision.

 

If you have any queries about this email, please contact me.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Brendan Fitzpatrick

Information Governance Unit

Belfast City Council
