Walton Street in Green Zone and 'external stakeholders'

Oxford City Council Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Oxford City Council,
On the 22nd January 2020, after a City Council Cabinet meeting on the 21st January 2020, a new map appeared published on the Council's ZEZ documentations in which the closed end of Walton Street (from the bottom of Little Clarendon Street to the ETRO barriers on the Beaumont/Worcestor junction) suddenly appeared to be included in the Green Zone map of the ZEZ plan.

In the interests of full public transparency - rather than "behind closed doors" - please provide
1. all communications and documentations relating to discussions preceding the 22nd January that show how the discussions evolved to the inclusion of Walton Street into the Green Zone map
2. an explanation of how and why and when it was decided to include Walton Street into the Green Zone
3. all communications and documentations relating to 'external stakeholders' who contributed to these discussions and decisions
4. clearly identify these 'external stakeholders' and clearly explain why and how they have/are influencing the Council on matters of Walton Street closure and Green Zoning
5. all communications and documentation relating to such discussions at the Cabinet Meeting of 21st January 2020 - which are not on the public website domain containing the minutes and agendas

Yours faithfully,

Dolce Far-Niente

Dear Dolce Far-Niente,
 
Oxford City Council – Reference: 9121
 
Thank you for your email below.  Your request was received on 10th March
2020 and you will be sent a response within 20 working days (of receipt)
in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000/ Environmental
Information Regulations 2004 (EIR), subject to the information not being
exempt or containing reference to a third party.
 
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) recognises the unprecedented
challenges all are facing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
 
In particular they understand that resources, whether they are finances or
people, may be diverted away from usual compliance or information rights
work. Whilst the ICO can’t extend statutory timescales, they will not be
penalising public authorities for prioritising other areas or adapting
their usual approach during this extraordinary period.
 
Therefore while the Council will make every effort to comply with the
Statutory Requirements you may experience understandable delays when
making information rights requests during the pandemic.
 
Yours sincerely
 
 
Kathryn Winfield
