Dear Ms Hitchcock




I am writing regarding your request for information dated 29 June 2016.
You have requested the following:


                Please can you provide me with all the correspondence
relating to the disabled parking bay which has just been installed on St
Mary's Drive in Bedfont.

                I do not recall seeing any signs declaring it and would
have objected if I had known


Our response:


After checking that an application meets the criteria, we undertake an
assessment of the site prior to giving approval for the bay application to
proceed further.


A technical drawing is then produced of the bay and the proposal is then
advertised as part of a required 21 day statutory consultation period. It
is advertised in the local paper, on our website, and placed on local lamp
columns by our contractor Hounslow Highways (as well as a copy being held
at the counter here at the Civic Centre).  


A copy of the ‘Traffic Management Order’ (TMO) is attached, the statutory
consultation period ended 28 April 2017 (as explained in the attached
TMO). In this instance, no objections were received to the proposal
therefore the contractor was instructed to proceed.


I have not included a copy of the original application form submitted to
us as this contains personal information relating to the applicants
medical conditions, we are also currently undergoing an office move and
the majority of such records have been sent away for scanning.


The response to your request has been dealt with under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.
