Dear Oxfordshire County Council,

I would like to learn more about what impact the East Oxford low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs) are having on various public services. To that end, please provide me with any correspondence that relates to LTNs (all directions), between OCC council staff and the following organisations, since the East Oxford LTNs began to be installed:

OCC and South Central Ambulance Service;
OCC and Southern Medical Rescue;
OCC and Phoenix Response Services;
OCC and Thames Valley Police;
OCC and Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service;
OCC and ODS.

The time period of my enquiry is between 20 May 2022 and today's date. In your search, please specifically look for words that relate to LTNs, as well as the "low traffic neighbourhood" and "LTNs" themselves - for example, bollards, lockable, keys etc.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Parnham

Dear Mr Parnham,

 

Thank you for your request of 20 June 2022 in which you asked for the
following information:

 

I would like to learn more about what impact the East Oxford low traffic
neighbourhoods (LTNs) are having on various public services. To that end,
please provide me with any correspondence that relates to LTNs (all
directions), between OCC council staff and the following organisations,
since the East Oxford LTNs began to be installed:

 

OCC and South-Central Ambulance Service; OCC and Southern Medical Rescue;
OCC and Phoenix Response Services; OCC and Thames Valley Police; OCC and
Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service; OCC and ODS.

 

The time period of my enquiry is between 20 May 2022 and today's date. In
your search, please specifically look for words that relate to LTNs, as
well as the "low traffic neighbourhood" and "LTNs" themselves - for
example, bollards, lockable, keys etc.

 

 

Please find attached email correspondence as requested, document titled,
20022 EIR Emails.pdf’.

 

 

The Council has redacted the following information from the disclosure:

 

 1. The mobile telephone numbers of all Council staff and
 2. The names addresses and contact details of some third parties who are
not Council staff.

 

The Council considers that this information is exempt from disclosure
under regulation13 of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004. 
Regulation 13 provides that information shall not be disclosed where it
constitutes the personal data of someone other than the applicant and that
disclosure would satisfy one of the following three conditions:

 

1. disclosure would contravene any of the data protection principles, or
would do so if the exemptions in section 24(1) of the Data Protection Act
2018 (manual unstructured data held by public authorities) were
disregarded or,

2. disclosure would contravene Article 21 of the GDPR (general processing:
right to object to processing), or section 99 of the Data Protection Act
2018 (intelligence services processing: right to object to processing).

3. on a request under Article 15(1) of the GDPR (general processing: right
of access by the data subject) for access to personal data, the
information would be withheld in reliance on provision made by or under
section 15, 16 or 26 of, or Schedule 2, 3 or 4 to, the Data Protection Act
2018, on a request under section 45(1)(b) of that Act (law enforcement
processing: right of access by the data subject), the information would be
withheld in reliance on subsection (4) of that section, or on a request
under section 94(1)(b) of that Act (intelligence services processing:
rights of access by the data subject), the information would be withheld
in reliance on a provision of Chapter 6 of Part 4 of that Act.

 

In this case, the relevant condition is the first condition. 
Specifically, the council considers that the first data protection
principle would be breached; namely, that disclosure of the redacted
information would not be fair for the following reasons:

 

 1. The reasonable expectations of the data subjects and the nature of the
information itself leads the Council to conclude that the data
subjects could not reasonably expect that this information would be
disclosed;
 2. Neither this, nor similar information has been released into the
public domain by the data subjects or anyone else; and
 3. That the legitimate interests in the public having access to this
information do not outweigh the interests in preserving the rights and
freedoms of the data subjects.

 

In reaching this decision, the Council noted that the following
consequences may occur if this information was disclosed:

 

 1. The data subject would not expect this information to be released,

 

In light of the above, the Council considers it justified to uphold this
exemption by applying redactions to the disclosure.
