[Name Removed] made this Freedom of Information request to Monmouthshire County Council as part of a batch sent to 22 authorities This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was refused by Monmouthshire County Council.

To Whom it May Concern,

1) Please provide information on how much has been spent on cycling infrastructure in the area you're responsible for, broken down each year for the last 5 available financial years.

Where cycling provision has been provided as part of wider improvement works, these should be listed as cost for the cycling-related improvements, not for the entire project.

3) Please detail how much has been spent, broken down by year, on dedicated segregated cycling infrastructure (only dedicated cycle paths featuring light, full or kerb segregation away from motor vehicles, NOT included on-road painted cycle lanes, shared usage paths or existing re-purposed shared usage infrastructure such as canal towpaths or greenways).

For the avoidance of doubt, segregation refers to the physical separation of cyclists from motorised traffic, and can be provided by the following:
Kerbs
Kerbed plinths AKA Armadillos
Bollards
Soft margins or verges
Crash barriers (Trunk roads)

4) Please detail how many miles of segregated infrastructure has been built in the last 5 years (only dedicated cycle paths featuring light, full or kerb segregation away from motor vehicles, NOT included on-road painted cycle lanes, shared usage paths or existing re-purposed shared usage infrastructure such as canal towpaths or greenways).

Good morning,

Freedom of Information and the Coronavirus Covid-19

During the pandemic we know that we won’t be able to respond to
requests in the normal way and will need to prioritise other
services and adapt our usual approach during this extraordinary
period. I appreciate that your response is already overdue. I am
continuing to chase the final bits to complete it but I hope you can
  bear with us during this challenging time.  

We have contacted the ICO who have stated that they understand that
resources, whether they are financial or people, might be diverted
away from usual compliance or information governance work. They
won’t penalise organisations that they know need to re-organise
workloads.

With kind regards,

Freedom of Information

Good morning,

I write regarding your Freedom of Information request submitted on
18th February 2020.

During the height of the pandemic and lockdown period a number of
our staff were redeployed into Covid-19 response teams. This
included our Freedom of Information team and those who provide the
responses from the service areas. This has resulted in a backlog of
requests, however we are now working to recover this backlog and get
up to date.
   
We wondered if you still require the information. If so would you be
able to let us know by 26^th August please? I will then continue to
chase the service areas.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and patience
during these difficult times.

With kind regards,

Regards,
 
Freedom of Information

Monmouthshire County Council

Good morning,

I refer to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

You asked:

 1. Please provide information on how much has been spent on cycling
infrastructure in the area you're responsible for, broken down
each year for the last 5 available financial years.

2) Please also list the amount spent, sorted by Funding Type/Source
(e.g. Capital, Section 106, Central Government funding initiatives),
broken down each year for the last 5 available financial years.

3) Please detail how much has been spent, broken down by year, on
dedicated segregated cycling infrastructure (only dedicated cycle
paths featuring light, full or kerb segregation away from motor
vehicles, NOT included on-road painted cycle lanes, shared usage
paths or existing re-purposed shared usage infrastructure such as
canal towpaths or greenways).

For the avoidance of doubt, segregation refers to the physical
separation of cyclists from motorised traffic, and can be provided
by the following:
Kerbs
Kerbed plinths AKA Armadillos
Bollards
Soft margins or verges
Crash barriers (Trunk roads)

4) Please detail how many miles of segregated infrastructure has
been built in the last 5 years (only dedicated cycle paths featuring
light, full or kerb segregation away from motor vehicles, NOT
included on-road painted cycle lanes, shared usage paths or existing
re-purposed shared usage infrastructure such as canal towpaths or
greenways).
 

Our response is:

I have been advised by our service areas that, in the first
instance, we haven't installed any dedicated cycle facilities over
the last 5 years. Additionally, much of the information requested
isn't recorded by us in any sort of way.

We also note that we not received a reply to our emails sent on 12th
August and 4th September. We have therefore assumed you do not wish
to pursue the request. We have closed the request
unanswered/incomplete. If you want to submit a new request in future
  you can do so by either emailing us at  
[1][email address] or by completing the
form on our [2]website.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the way the Council has handled your
request for information, you can request a review by e-mail
to [3][email address] or by writing to:

Paul Matthews
 
Chief Executive

PO Box 106

Caldicot

NP26 9AN

 

If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you
have a right to appeal to the Information Commissioner at:

Information Commissioner’s Office

2nd Floor

Churchill House

Churchill Way

Cardiff

CF10 2HH

Telephone: 02920 678400
