Mr Roulston


I refer to your Freedom of Information request dated 18^th December 2013.


I attach a schedule of FLT incidents at CGMA from 1^st January 2009 to


The incidents on 11^th June and  27^th September 2010 are the subject of
claims that are going through a court process. These are being dealt with
by our insurance company. We do not have details of costs incurred to date
as they are not directly passed on to us. There have been no out of court


In 2011 CGMA was prosecuted by Wandsworth Council in respect of the
incident dated 11^th June 2010. This resulted in a fine of £20k plus costs
of £15k.


During the period we received 10 Improvement Notices. Although they did
not specifically refer to FLTs they covered separation of workplace
transport and pedestrians, vehicle movements and circulation and site


We have received no prohibition notices or other interventions re health
and safety nor incurred any fees for intervention.
