Dear Andy Green,
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 (FOIA) – REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
The City of London (CoL) acknowledges receipt of your request for information of 11 January 2020.
Public authorities are required to respond to requests within the statutory timescale of 20 working days beginning from the first working day after they receive a request. The Act does not always require public authorities to disclose the information which they hold.
The FOIA applies to the CoL as a local authority, police authority and port health authority. The CoL is the local and police authority for the “Square Mile”, ie the historic City of London, and not for London as a whole. Please see the following page containing a link to a map (‘Explore the City’), which shows the local authority area covered by the CoL:
The CoL does have some functions, including Port Health Authority functions, which extend beyond the City boundary. For further information please see: www.cityoflondon.gov.uk.

Dear Andy Green,
REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
Following your request dated 11 January 2020 and our acknowledgement of 13
January, the City of London (CoL) responds as follows:
Please note that the CoL is not solely a local authority; it has
charitable and other related functions as well as public ones. As a
result, the work of the CoL is funded from one of three sources which it
controls. One is the City Fund (a public, tax-based fund); another is
City’s Cash (a combination of funds including endowments which have been
built up over the centuries); and the third is charities funding,
primarily the Bridge House Estates Fund (which maintains the five City
bridges across the Thames), and charities which maintain open spaces in
and around London, such as Hampstead Heath. Only City Fund activities,
i.e. its functions as a local authority, police authority and port health
authority, fall within scope of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
Please see the FOIA, Schedule 1, Part II, paragraph 9. For further
information about the CoL's finances, budgets and governance arrangements,
please see the website at www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/finance.
The CoL confirms that the information you have requested, ‘I would to
request Fleet list of vehicles used by Epping Forest Keepers’, is funded
by from City’s Cash and is therefore out of scope of the FOIA.
If you’d like to learn more about operations within Epping Forest, please
We hope that this response is of assistance.
