This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for mr m to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
Why did your contractor dig up & concrete a grass verge outside 44-46 mark rake around
2016 when it only had a missing kerb and additionally a grass verge nearby had bigger problem and only the kerb was replaced (and not even the edging)

as the first job (grass dug up & concreted) was surly a bigger, higher cost job.

Please supply all photo's/ associated information under FOI/GDPR.

Yours faithfully,

mr m

InfoMgr, FinDMT, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Sir

Thank you for your recent request made under the Freedom of Information Act.

In accordance with Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, a requester should provide their name for a request to be processed (please see the guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office below):

What constitutes a real name?
We consider that a relatively informal approach is also appropriate in this context. Therefore, title and/or first name with surname satisfies the requirement for provision of a real name, as does the use by a female applicant of her maiden name. The prime consideration is whether enough of a person’s full name has been provided to give a reasonable indication of that person’s identity.

Example:
Mr Arthur Thomas Roberts could satisfy Section 8(1)(b) of the FOIA by stating his name in a request for information as “Arthur Roberts”, “A. T. Roberts”, or “Mr Roberts”, but not by stating his name as “Arthur” or “A.T.R.”

In most cases, it will be reasonable for a real name to comprise a name by which the person making the request is widely known and/or is regularly used by that person and which is not an obvious pseudonym or fictitious name.

Once Wirral Borough Council are in receipt of your full name, your request will be passed to the relevant department and we will aim to issue a substantive response within 20 working days.

Yours sincerely

resourcing issues to address the challenges we currently have.

 

We are working hard to ensure you do not have to wait too much longer for

Dear Mr Mohammed Al-Blushi

 

Thank you for your recent request for information regarding the verge
outside 44-46 Mark Rake, Bromborough.  We apologise for the delay in
providing a response.

 

Our Highways management team have advised that the creation of a hard
paved area on a grass verge is normally due to sustained damage that has
undermined the integrity of the adjacent footway.  Where this occurs, it
is deemed to be a safety issue and appropriate steps are taken to remedy
this.  We do not hold any further information or photographs in relation
to your enquiry. 

 

Thank you for your patience and we trust this information is of use.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,
you should hold records including photographs for the below reasons:

Section 58 of the highways act including defences against claims and your inspection reports etc.
an issue was logged via your crm database from 44 mark rake and it was noted the verge would be replaced with concrete. Why can't you supply the request(s) from 44 mark rake?

a work order was raised to inspect and then subsequently remedy the deffect.
photographs of both completed jobs where taken by the council employee(s) (CCTV to prove this), who were these photographs sent to?

Saftey barriers were errected arround the concreted grass verge and removed around 3 days later after it had dried.

your workmen returned to the concreted grass verge between 44-46 mark rake 3times
1. to dig up the grass and concrete
2. to smooth over the wet concrete
3. to remove the barriers.

Why don't you have records going back to 2016 including these records?
Yet you have planning applications for example from the 1970's.
How long are street problem logs / records kept for.

the path / verge outside of 46 mark rake has damaged the surrounding pavingslabs / concrete so whywill you not concrete the affected area?
In view of the above I would an internal review before (hopefully not) having to approach the Local Govenment Ombudsman.

Yours sincerely,

mr m al-blushi

Dear Mr Al-Blushi

 

We write further to your recent request for an internal review of the way
in which the Council responded to your FOI request of 18 July 2018.

 

Your original request asked the following:

 

“Why did your contractor dig up & concrete a grass verge outside 44-46
mark rake around 2016 when it only had a missing kerb and additionally a
grass verge nearby had bigger problem and only the kerb was replaced (and
not even the edging) as the first job (grass dug up & concreted) was surly
a bigger, higher cost job.”

 

This was responded to on 13 September 2018 advising you as follows:

 

“Our Highways management team have advised that the creation of a hard
paved area on a grass verge is normally due to sustained damage that has
undermined the integrity of the adjacent footway.  Where this occurs, it
is deemed to be a safety issue and appropriate steps are taken to remedy
this.  We do not hold any further information or photographs in relation
to your enquiry.”

 

Our records relating to that specific area of verge in 2016 have been
rechecked and again no photographs have been identified. I am satisfied
therefore that the response provided above was correct.

 

I am advised the highways inspectors do take photographs primarily as a
point of reference but there is no requirement to record these on CRM or
anywhere else centrally.  Once such minor works are completed, photographs
are normally deleted. However, the inspector who dealt with the verge in
2016 has been able to provide the attached photograph.  The decision to
concrete this part of the verge was taken as a result of the kerb coming
out so it was more cost effective to remove this and  replace with
concrete.  This was not an extension to the crossing and the work
benefited both properties.

 

My enquiries have identified that there are photographs held on our CRM
database of an adjacent area of verge and you have already been advised
separately regards this.  However this is not relevant to this FOI request
and any further correspondence in relation to the same should be dealt
with via our corporate complaints process

If you remain dissatisfied with this review, you may complain to the
Information Commissioner’s Office at

Yours sincerely
