Dear Belfast City Council,

Can you confirm:

1) That Belfast City Council owned car parks are still charging key NHS staff who must attend work, for parking during COVID-19.

2) Can you state whether there are any plans to provide temporary free-parking during covid-19 outbreak, to key NHS staff?

Time is obviously of the essence and these are very straightforward questions to answer, it would be greatly appreciated if you could respond as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,

Dear N Campbell

 

Thank you for your information request, which was received by the Council
on 25 March 2020.

 

Your request will be forwarded to the relevant Council department to
respond to you.  It will receive prompt attention, but in light of the
revised arrangements the Council has had to put in place to deal with the
COVID19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, it may not be possible to respond to you
within the statutory timeframe.  You will, however, receive a response as
soon as possible. 

 

I hope that you will understand the Council’s position in these
unprecedented and difficult circumstances.  Should you be dissatisfied
with the Council’s handling of your request, you can complain to the
Information Commissioner, by writing to:  The Information Commissioner,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9  5AF.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear FOI,

No I don't accept that at all. It is not a regular query that requires hours of sifting through records. These are two questions that are both Yes or No and very important in Northern ireland's attempt to tackle COVID-19.

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOI,

Day 2:

Can you address this very imporant issue as soon as possible? I would draw your attention to several private companies who have made the decision to provide key workers with free parking durin the lockdown period.

Yours sincerely,

N Campbell
