Dear Transport Scotland,

I am looking for information on how the recently launched "Nice Way Code" was commissioned. I am particularly interested in the brief for the campaign, and any other guidance as to what the campaign was meant to cover or not cover. I would also like to know what studies or surveys, if any, informed the brief or guidance.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Jakma

Dear Transport Scotland,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews. I am writing to request an internal review of Transport Scotland's handling of my FOI request 'Commissioning of the Nice Way Code'.

It is clear from the reply that Transport Scotland is well-informed as to how the NiceWayCode was commissioned and developed, and so must have been kept appraised of how the NiceWayCode was developed & commissioned. Transport Scotland surely retains information given to it by Cycling Scotland on the process.

My FOI request asked for “information on how the recently launched "Nice Way Code" was commissioned”. Which clearly would cover all such material given by Cycling Scotland to Transport Scotland.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Dear Transport Scotland,

Please note that my request clearly was intended to apply to any and all direction Transport Scotland gave to Cycling Scotland when Transport Scotland gave Cycling Scotland the funding for what became the "Nice Way Code" campaign.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Transport Scotland,

Thank you for conducting a review of your response to my FOI request.

Firstly, I still do not find either of your responses to my request credible, given that the initial response indicated that Transport Scotland did in fact have detailed knowledge of how the campaign was developed. Again, my understanding is that the Freedom of Information Act covers all information in your possession - not just that which you generated. I believe you have failed in your statutory duty to supply that information.

Secondly, I do not find it credible that Transport Scotland had absolutely no role in the development or commissioning of the Nice Way Code. I do not find it credible that Transport Scotland simply handed over £424k to Cycling Scotland without any comment or guidance, at any stage in the process. Further, I have other reasons to believe Transport Scotland in fact did give guidance for the campaign to Cycling Scotland.

Unless you contact me before the end of the working day tomorrow, October the 3rd, I will be appealing your refusal to the Information Commissioner.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Jakma

Dear Mr Jakma

 

Thank you for your email.  I have confirmed again today that Transport
Scotland does not hold any further information on the Nice Way Code.

 

However, in an effort to be more helpful I have attached a report that is
in the public domain produced by Cycling Scotland.  If you require any
further information I would urge you to contact Cycling Scotland
directly.  A named contact at Cycling Scotland is Andrew Pankhurst.
