Sorry, am I to understand that the pond has been constructed and the life bouys are in place?

So the work has actually been done, but the cost is unknown?

Catherine Upton left an annotation ()

Yes, I can confirm that the ponds have been constructed for about a year and the buoys have been in place for some months....so it seems quite bizarre that the costs are not known.

Dear High Speed Two (HS2) Limited,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of High Speed Two (HS2) Limited's handling of my FOI request 'Cost of Life Buoys'.

Thank you for your email. In your reply you say that "the costs are still subject to negotiation and have not been finalised." I presume you are aware that these ponds have been constructed for about a year now and the buoys have been in place for some months? In the light of this please reconsider my FOI request.
I look forward to hearing from you asap.
Many thanks
Catherine Upton

I'm sure this has already been considered but perhaps the authority can take a look at the invoices related to the construction of the specific site in question, or perhaps check the receipts? Then the precise costs of this site would be known and therefore readily available to the requester.

I'm sure the accounts department can assist with this with ease if given the appropriate reference for that site; I'm sure the site reference is readily available to the authority
