Dear Oxford City Council,

Please provide me with the most expansive possible breakdown of costs associated with the installation of the three low traffic neighbourhoods around Cowley, Oxford.

Ideally, I would like to know:
the estimate cost of time spend preparing the proposal (i.e. officers' time / resources/ third party consultancy fees). Please provide an itemised breakdown of these costs, if possible.
the costs associated with residents engagement activates, up to and including any evaluation report produced. Please provide an itemised breakdown of these costs, if possible.
the cost of deploying the necessary infrastructure - planters, barriers AND any IT costs associated with granting exemptions for taxis etc. Please provide an itemised breakdown of these costs, if possible.
the costs associated with monitoring traffic flows, pollution, congestion levels etc - internal and external costs. Please provide an itemised breakdown of these costs, if possible.
the estimated budget for dealing with post deployment residents' engagement and feedback evaluation (including IT setup costs). Please provide an itemised breakdown of these costs, if possible.
any contingency funds regarding the deployment. i.e. vandalism, deployment changes, legal challenges etc. Please provide an itemised breakdown of these costs, if possible.
Any other costs associated with this project for which OCC has data. Please provide an itemised breakdown of these costs, if possible.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Parnham

 

Oxford City Council – Reference: 9812

 

Thank you for your email.

 

Your request was received on 23^rd January 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
