Dear Oxfordshire County Council,

When the pre-installation East Oxford LTN consultation was carried out, I believe that limited protected characteristics data were captured from survey respondents as part of the consultation survey itself. Protected characteristics data captured covered respondents' gender (i.e sex) (q20), age (q21), ethnicity (q22), and disability (q24). However, so far as I can tell, while the overall breakdown of respondents by demography was summarised in the Marketing Means report that accompanied the 29 July 2021 authorisation meeting document pack, no attempt was made to analyse consultation responses (in favour, against etc) by specific reference to respondents' protected characteristics. Nor did the Equalities and Climate Impact Assessment undertake such an assessment, despite this assemenet being an obvious place for such analysis to occur.

I am therefore making two requests:

1) If any (however rough, internal, and not formally "published") assessment of the pre-installation East Oxford consultation reponses has been undertaken, by reference to the respondents' specific protected characteristics listed above, please provide me with it.

2) If no such assessment has been undertaken to date, please do so now - and supply me with the findings. To keep this request manageable, I am happy to only recieve a breakdown of the entire response cohort (i.e. NOT broken down by reference to each of the three LTNs - Divinity Road, St Mary's and St Clements). This means I only require a whole population breakdown by reference to (q7?) "Fully support, tend to support, neutral, object, stongly object", cross referenced firstly to respondents by sex (i.e. q20), then age (i.e. 21), then ethnicity (q22), then disability (q24). This should generate four "whole population" analyses in total - not a particuarly onerous request for an FOI. I am making this request that this analysis is undertaken via FOI because a) you would probably refuse to supply me with the raw data anyway on privacy grounds and b) this analysis really should have been done anway by the council, pre-decision, and will probably be used anyway to inform any retention decision.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Parnham

Dear Mr Parnham,

Thank you for your correspondence received on 04 May 2022 in which you
asked for the following information:

 

When the pre-installation East Oxford LTN consultation was carried out,  I
believe that limited protected characteristics data were captured from
survey respondents as part of the consultation survey itself.  Protected
characteristics data captured covered respondents' gender (i.e sex) (q20),
age (q21), ethnicity (q22), and disability (q24). However, so far as I can
tell, while the overall breakdown of respondents by demography was
summarised in the Marketing Means report that accompanied the 29 July 2021
authorisation meeting document pack, no attempt was made to analyse
consultation responses (in favour, against etc) by specific reference to
respondents' protected characteristics. Nor did the Equalities and Climate
Impact Assessment undertake such an assessment, despite this assemenet
being an obvious place for such analysis to occur.

 

I am therefore making two requests:

 

1) If any (however rough, internal, and not formally "published")
assessment of the pre-installation East Oxford consultation reponses has
been undertaken, by reference to the respondents' specific protected
characteristics listed above, please provide me with it.

 

2) If no such assessment has been undertaken to date, please do so now -
and supply me with the findings. To keep this request manageable, I am
happy to only recieve a breakdown of the entire response cohort (i.e. NOT
broken down by reference to each of the three LTNs - Divinity Road, St
Mary's and St Clements). This means I only require a whole population
breakdown by reference to (q7?) "Fully support, tend to support, neutral,
object, stongly object", cross referenced firstly to respondents by sex
(i.e. q20), then age (i.e. 21), then ethnicity (q22), then disability
(q24). This should generate four "whole population" analyses in total -
not a particuarly onerous request for an FOI. I am making this request
that this analysis is undertaken via FOI because a) you would probably
refuse to supply me with the raw data anyway on privacy grounds and b)
this analysis really should have been done anway by the council,
pre-decision, and will probably be used anyway to inform any retention
decision.

 

 

Your request is being considered and you will receive the information
