Richard Parnham

Dear Oxford City Council,

Please provide me with any written correspondence (any format) between any
bus companies operating in Oxford, and any / all of the following:

a) active travel personnel at Oxford City Council (or nearest equivalent);

b) any other Oxford City Council personnel involved in the implementation of the Cowley
LTNs

c) the (then / now) political leader of Oxford city council;

d) the (then / now) Oxford City Council deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Green Transport and Zero Carbon Oxford

regarding the Cowley LTNs specifically. The time period for my enquiry is
the date from which the Cowley LTNs started to be implemented, to the
present day. I am particularly interested in learning about any complaints
from the bus companies regarding new delays to bus journeys in Cowley,
which may have been caused by the new Cowley Low Traffic Neighbourhoods.

I am happy to have the names of bus company personnel and Oxford City Council Official
redacted, but I would prefer to see the correspondence provided by elected
councillors in full.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Parnham

Dear Mr Parnham,

Oxford City Council – Reference: 10117

Thank you for your email. Your request was received on 13th May 2021 and you will be sent a response within 20 working days (of receipt) in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000/ Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR), subject to the information not being exempt or containing reference to a third party.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) recognises the unprecedented challenges all are facing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In particular they understand that resources, whether they are finances or people, may be diverted away from usual compliance or information rights work. Whilst the ICO can’t extend statutory timescales, they will not be penalising public authorities for prioritising other areas or adapting their usual approach during this extraordinary period.

Therefore while the Council will make every effort to comply with the Statutory Requirements you may experience understandable delays when making information rights requests during the pandemic.

Yours sincerely

Kathryn Winfield
