Correspondence with the Garden Bridge Trust & TfL re: the Garden Bridge

tom francis made this Freedom of Information request to Greater London Authority

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

The request was partially successful.

Dear Greater London Authority,

Please make public all correspondence (written and by email) from 5th May 2016 to date between the GLA/Mayor's office and the Garden Bridge Trust, and between the GLA/Mayor's office and TfL concerning the Garden Bridge. Please also make public full details of all financial information about the Garden Bridge project that may have been provided together with this correspondence.

The purpose of making public this information is to allow the public to know the extent of oversight of this project, which is spending large amounts of public money, by the Mayor's office, and to understand better the degree of risk that, under existing guarantees, the Mayor will be forced to provide large amounts of further funding.

Thanks very much.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Francis

Greater London Authority
