Dear Oxford City Council,

Can you tell me how much money has been spent on the Zero Emission Zone (ZEZ) so far and how much has been budgeted to complete the Zero Emission Zone Pilot (ZEZ Pilot)?
Can you give a breakdown of the estimated costs of the:
1) Signs to be installed around the perimeter of the zone and on the routes into the city to notify drivers of the ZEZ Pilot;
2) Software and other resources needed to take payments and registrations for discounts;
3) Enforcement cameras and the associated automatic number plate recognition technology to be used.
Many thanks

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr O'Neal,

Oxford City Council – Reference: 10332

Thank you for your email. Your request was received on 12th August 2021 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
Information Governance Requests Officer

Dear Mr O'Neal,
 
Oxford City Council – Reference: 10332
 
Further to the acknowledgement below, it is more proper to consider your
request in accordance with the Environmental Information Regulations 2004
(EIR), rather than the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  Therefore, I can
respond to your  EIR request received on  12^th August
2021 as follows:
 
Can you tell me how much money has been spent on the Zero Emission Zone
(ZEZ) so far and how much has been budgeted to complete the Zero Emission
Zone Pilot (ZEZ Pilot)?
 
This response is from Oxford City Council alone.
 
Please find below information about the contributions Oxford City Council
has made towards funding the ZEZ feasibility work and any specific funding

4.      ZEZ phase 1 feasibility work budget in place £150 K 21/22 to
support a range of evidence based work for the ZEZ.  This work has not yet
been commissioned and a budget bid will be made to support this background

5.      ZEZ pilot – no specific budget has been allocated for the pilot
however we were awarded a Defra grant to employ a ZEZ business engagement
officer for a fixed term period of 18 months. 
 
Can you give a breakdown of the estimated costs of the:
1)      Signs to be installed around the perimeter of the zone and on the

registrations for discounts;
3)      Enforcement cameras and the associated automatic number plate
