Amey's communications with South Yorkshire Police regarding tree felling operations in Sheffield

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Sheffield City Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Sheffield City Council,

In accordance with Clause 90.2.1 of the Streetsahead Highway Maintenance contract, please can you provide all data held by and related to any legal entity containing the word Amey and their communications with South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner.

I am specifically seeking data associated with the tree felling programme in Sheffield.

Please contact me if this is likely to take longer than the relevant allowance in order that I can refine my request accordingly.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. Buxton

Thanks for your email 10 January 2020.

We apologise for not responding by the deadline for this request. Our

Dear Leon Kaplan,

Thank you for your email dated 14th January 2020, in which you indicated that I should expect to hear from you with the result of your search for data relating to my FOI request titled, ' Amey's communications with South Yorkshire Police regarding tree felling operations in Sheffield' (Reference – FOI / 1369) by 16th January.

The information was due on the 13th January 2020 and is now significantly overdue.

Dear Mr Buxton
Thanks for your email of 23 January 2020 enquiring after your response.

We have located, identified and extracted the information relating to this request, which has been complex and could have justifiably merited a 40 day deadline (under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004). This would have made the response due on 7 February 2020. However, we have to ask for your patience a little longer, whilst we finalise the response. I think that might take up to another week.

Yours sincerely

Leon Kaplan
