Experimental Traffic Regulation Order Ramsden Road Holmfirth

The request was successful.

Dear Kirklees Borough Council,

Please can you advise me of the costs the council has incurred in making this experimental traffic regulation order? This should include the costs of the bureaucratic process and the works on site to physically stop up the highway to motor vehicles.

The order was advertised as being in force for 18 months. After only a few days the gates on site were unlocked and the council advised it was not enforcing the ETRO. Please can you provide a reason/s for this course of action ? Please provide documentation you hold relating to this decision.

Yours faithfully,

ALeader

Dear Kirklees Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Kirklees Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Experimental Traffic Regulation Order Ramsden Road Holmfirth'.

Thank you for the information which you have provided however I believe you are incorrect when you state that you do not have a figure for the costs of the Ramsden Road ETRO. The process takes 9 to 12 months and is carried out by a specific council unit. Presumably the order had to be commissioned and paid for by the Greenspace action team manager or equivalent and paid for from a specific budget? In most local authorities such orders cost around £4,000. Are you saying they are free in Kirklees or that the council does not keep records of expenditure like this?

You state the order was subject to a technical fault but do not disclose what this is. Please can you tell me?

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

Yours faithfully,
