Data associated with representatives of Sheffield City Council meeting with South Yorkshire Police and Amey on 1/2/18 regarding felling of trees

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Sheffield City Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Sheffield City Council,

On the 1st February 2018 Council Officer Paul Billington and "Bryan" (I am assuming this is Cllr Bryan Lodge, then a cabinet member) met with South Yorkshire Police and Amey.

Please provide any and all data related to, or associated with this meeting (this would include data before and after the meeting itself).

Please include a thorough search of data which may not be considered 'live', eg. data generated by anyone no longer in post.

Please also ensure data held by Amey is sought.

I would be grateful if the minimal amount of redaction is employed to facilitate publication, as per the applicable legislation.

Note: Emails or other data with the caveat "Covered by legal privilege and not subject to FOI" or similar, should be rigorously assessed to ensure the exemption of "legal privilege" can legitimately be argued and justified.

Yours faithfully,

R Naylor

FOI, Sheffield City Council

Hi R Naylor

Thanks for your messages of 24 January and 11 February enquiring about the response due to you. I am sorry that this has slipped due to the Christmas break, staff absence and a busy information rights Inbox. We are picking this request up again and propose to reply by 21 February if not before.

We'd be grateful for your patience.
