Dear King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council,
Please can you tell me the cost to the council for allowing the
Olympic Torch to pass through the area covered by the council?
Please could you provide a breakdown of the costs such as extra pay
for staff, extra cost of policing, road closures, branded bunting
and other associated costs.
In addition, could you tell me what income, if any, was earned from
the procession from parking, selling advertising space etc
And finally, if you did have any grant funding or sponsorship, can
you tell me how much was provided by LOCOG?
I would like this information in electronic form. If you require
further clarification, please let me know.
