Dear Transport for London,

I made a FOI request to you, details as follows: TfL Ref: FOI-0824-1617. I asked for details (minutes, notes of meetings etc.) of all meetings between TfL and Enfield Council about the mini-Holland cycle scheme.
My request was acknowledged as follows:
"Thank you for your email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 27 July 2016. Your request will be processed in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and TfL’s information access policy. A response will be provided to you by 25 August 2016."

I am writing to let you know that your response has not been delivered to me by the due date and that, if I do not receive a response in the next day or so, I will be filing a public complaint through the appropriate channels. I have received no notification from you that your response might be delayed and, indeed, can see no reason for such a delay. By law, your organisation should have responded promptly and within the allotted timescale (rather than on the deadline).

I await your urgent response to this follow up enquiry.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Rowe

 

TfL Ref: FOI-0824-1617

 

Thank you for your email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 27 July
2016. Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to you.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Environmental Information Regulations and our information access
policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require. You asked
for:

 

Please provide me with the agendas and minutes (or notes of meeting) for
any meetings held with Enfield Council Members and/or Enfield Council
Officers about the Mini Holland / Cycle Enfield scheme since 18 December
2015.

 

Attached are all the relevant meeting minutes and agendas you have
requested. The information attached is valid as of 4 August 2016.

 

Please note that in accordance with TfL’s obligations under the Data
Protection Act 1998 (DPA) any personal data has been removed, as required
by Regulation 13 of the Environmental Information Regulations. This is
because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the DPA,
specifically the first principle of the DPA, which requires all processing
of personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose
this personal information when the individuals have no expectation it
would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions of
Schedule 2 of the Data Protection Act which would make the processing
‘fair’.

 

There is currently one other meeting which has minutes which are being
written and finalised. This has not been included in the attached as it’s
not complete yet.

 

In accordance with the EIR, we are not obliged to supply you with a copy
as it is subject to a statutory exception to the right of access to
information under Regulation 12 (4) (d) as it relates to material which is
still in the course of completion.

 

The use of this exception is subject to an assessment of the public
interest in relation to the disclosure of the information concerned. We
recognise the need for openness and transparency by public authorities,
but in this instance the public interest test lies in favour of applying
the exception as the work is incomplete.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
