Latest air quality monitoring data for Oxford - June 2022 onwards

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Oxford City Council,

Please provide me with the recent air quality monitoring data you hold for the Cowley and Eastern areas of Oxford. By "recent”, I ideally mean from around 6 June 2022 onwards. I am happy to accept unverified / unapproved data. I understand you typically receive these monthly reports from Socotec between around 17 - 22 of each month, so may already be in possession of the July 2022 report at the time I make this request: if so, please provide it. You almost certainly will have received the June 2022 data, which I expect you to provide in response to this request.

This is is a follow-on request to several similar requests made previously, because I want to evaluate the impact of the ending of lockdown and the Cowley LTNs on local pollution levels.

By "the Cowley" and "Eastern areas of Oxford", I mean all pollution monitoring stations around Cowley Road, the Plain, St Clements, Hollow Wall, Temple Road, Oxford Road, Garsington Road, Barns Road, Iffley Road, Horspath Driftway, and any other local pollution monitoring stations that do not currently appear on the https://oxfordshire.air-quality.info website. If in doubt regarding borderline monitoring stations, please include its data.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Parnham

Dear Oxford City Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Oxford City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Latest air quality monitoring data for Oxford - June 2022 onwards'.

No data, as requested, has been provided, despite chasing. My request is now overdue. Please provide it immediately. I have previously obtained earlier data in the same data series without any problems. You specifically have NOT provided the data I am asking for in this request and appeal in any previous reply.
