Dear Mr Gannon

 

Our ref: FOI-3008-1718/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 22
January 2018 asking for information about closing the Regents Park gates.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and our information access policy.

 

I can confirm that we do hold the information you require. However, to
provide the information you have requested would exceed the ‘appropriate
limit’ of £450 set by the Freedom of Information (Appropriate Limit and
Fees) Regulations 2004.

 

Under section 12 of the FOI Act, we are not obliged to comply with
requests if we estimate that the cost of determining whether we hold the
information, locating and retrieving it and extracting it from other
information would exceed the appropriate limit. In this instance, we
estimate that the time required to answer your request would exceed 18
hours which, at £25 per hour (the rate stipulated by the Regulations),
exceeds the ‘appropriate limit’.

 

Gate closures are part of the CS11 proposals for The Regent’s Park, and
TfL has been in discussion with stakeholders regarding these proposals for
the past four years.

 

It is proposed that a combination of gates would be closed for certain
times of the day to reduce traffic on the Outer Circle, but discussions
are ongoing.

 

There is a large volume of different documentation from this time period
i.e. reports, presentations, emails, minutes, which is held by different
people and in various locations. Identifying, retrieving and manually
checking all of the documents for the four year period to see if they are
relevant to your request would take an excessive amount of time and
resources.

 

To help bring the cost of responding to your requests within the £450
limit, you may wish to consider refining your requests to concentrate on
matters which are important to you, or by asking for specific information.

 

Although your request can take the form of a question, rather than a
request for specific documents, TfL does not have to answer your question
if it would require the creation of new information or the provision of a
judgement, explanation, advice or opinion that was not already recorded at
the time of your request. If you have specific questions relating to these
topics we may be more easily able to respond to these than to a request
for any information held.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Graham Hurt
