The request was successful.

Dear Transport for London,

Please could I be given copies of all "Covid-19 Streetspace" funding application documents submitted by Royal Borough of Greenwich? I'm particularly looking for the detail of what proposals were made & where for.

Please could I also be given copies of the results and any feedback/guidance issued to Royal Borough of Greenwich for each tranche of funding?

If you need any further clarification, please let me know.

Many thanks.

Dear Mr Trill

Thank you for your request received on 20 July 2020 asking for information
about the Streetspace funding application from the Royal Borough of
Greenwich.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Environmental Information Regulations and our information access
policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require. You asked
for:

 

Please find the requested information attached. Please note that boroughs
have also been awarded Department for Transport (DfT) funding, if you
require details on this funding please contact the DfT directly. We do not
hold feedback on the cycling bids as this has not been provided yet. Any
feedback will likely be provided at a future Transport and Environment
Committee meeting. Unsuccessful bids are currently on hold and will be
considered in the next round of funding.

 

Due to the size of the files I will send the remaining documents
separately.

in the Borough:

In accordance with our obligations under Data Protection legislation some
personal data has been removed, as required by regulation 13 of the EIR.
This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the
legislation, specifically the first principle of Article 5 of the General
Data Protection Regulation which requires all processing of personal data
to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal
information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed
and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions which would make the
processing ‘fair’.

 

This exemption to the right of access to information is an absolute
exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest
favours use of the exemption.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

 

The impact of current circumstances on TfL’s resources means we are not
able to answer FOI requests readily and we ask that you please do not make
a request to us at present.

 

Answering FOI requests will require the use of limited resources and the
attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity. In
any event, please note that our response time will be affected by the
current situation.

appeal.
