Dear Derbyshire County Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Derbyshire County Council's handling of my FOI request 'Derbyshire Emergency Active Travel Fund projects'.

The following was stated in response to this request:

“Tranche 1 Funding of the COVID Active Travel Emergency Fund - Work is
still ongoing delivering these interventions and a full list of completed
works will be published on the Council’s website in due course.

Tranche 2 - Business cases have to be submitted to the Department for
Transport by August 7th 2020 where they will be assessed. The outcome of
these assessments will determine how much individual Councils will
receive.”

This does not adequately satisfy my request nor provide the information requested. Please provide the following:

- Exact details of the Tranche 1 schemes, as submitted in the bid to the Department for Transport
- The complete business case/bid documents for Tranche 2, as submitted to the Department for Transport

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/d...
