Car parking fine data for tickets issued by Newport City Council

Jure Stabuc made this Freedom of Information request to Newport City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

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

Dear Newport City Council,

I request the raw data set of parking tickets - both on and off-street - issued in the name of Newport City Council within the last twelve-month period (I am happy for this to be either financial year or calendar year) broken down by: date, time, location, postcode, officer ID and gross income generated by parking fines.

I would like to know how many of the tickets are outstanding, how many were appealed and how many of those appeals were successful.

Please supply this as either xls or csv (spreadsheet) formats.

Ideally I would like the location unit to be 'street' including the postcode but if this is not practical then under your section 16 duty to advise and assist I would expect you to contact me to discuss how you record this Geo-spatial data so that I may narrow my request in a way that works for both of us.

I would also ask that you provide detail about the recording processes of this parking information. E.g. what software is used? What data fields are used and what other data sets it links to etc. If the data schema is the easiest way of providing this data then I would be happy to receive that as part of your response.

Yours faithfully,

Jure Stabuc

Dear Mr Stabuc,

 

In reply to your request for an internal review.

 

I have undertaken an internal review of your original request which I have
enclosed below. As you submitted this under freedom of information your
request has been treated in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act
2000,  the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 and the Data
Protection Act 1998.  These acts enable individuals to request and receive
recorded information held by public authorities, unless it is exempt from
disclosure against clear guidelines.

 

Your Original Request :  REQ03882.

 

I request the raw data set of parking tickets - both on and off-street -
issued in the name of Newport City Council within the last twelve-month
period (I am happy for this to be either financial year or calendar year)
broken down by: date, time, location, postcode, officer ID and gross
income generated by parking fines.

 

I would like to know how many of the tickets are outstanding, how many
were appealed and how many of those appeals were successful.

 

Please supply this as either xls or csv (spreadsheet) formats.

 

Ideally I would like the location unit to be 'street' including the
postcode but if this is not practical then under your section 16 duty to
advise and assist I would expect you to contact me to discuss how you
record this Geo-spatial data so that I may narrow my request in a way that
works for both of us.

 

I would also ask that you provide detail about the recording processes of
this parking information. E.g. what software is used? What data fields are
used and what other data sets it links to etc. If the data schema is the
easiest way of providing this data then I would be happy to receive that
as part of your response.

 

Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to your original
Freedom of Information Request.  I understand that you have now been
issued with a response.

 

I hope this provides the information you were looking for; if there is any
further information that we can provide, please submit a further request.

complaint or request a review of our decision, please contact me.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review you have a
right under section 50 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to apply
directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the
ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the Councils
complaints procedure. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
The Information Commissioners Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.

thank for your answer. Sadly, I still have not been issued a response in form of a data set I requested. I would like it at earliest convenience possible as now it is really taking a long time.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Information Management,

I would like to ask when I will get the data set asked for in my initial FOI request. After several months and a internal review the data set was still not sent.
