Dear Liverpool City Region Combined Authority,

I am writing to make an open government request for all of the
information, to which I am entitled to request under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

I would like answers to the following points;

1. Is grounds maintenance (ie mowing, tree work, weed spraying etc) work
undertaken by in-house teams or contracted out? If contracted who is the current contractor?

2. Who is responsible for managing in-house grounds maintenance teams or
contractors?

3. What is the contact name, address and email of the person responsible
for managing grounds maintenance activities?

4. What is the annual grounds maintenance budget?

5. Do you receive additional Government, non-profit or voluntary
donations, specifically for grounds maintenance tasks?

I would like the above information to be provided electronically. I
understand that you are legally compelled to respond to my request within
20 working days after receipt of my letter. I would be grateful if you
could confirm in writing that you have received this request.

Yours faithfully,

Steve Wright

FOI CA, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority

Dear Mr Wright

RSN18708

Thank you for your request made under the Freedom of Information Act.

Based on the understanding that by 'grounds maintenance' you mean landscaping and gardening work, the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority does not have any premises that require these services. We therefore unfortunately do not hold any recorded information in relation to your enquiry.

If you have not already done so, I would recommend redirecting your request to our constituent councils using the details below:
• Halton (https://www3.halton.gov.uk/Pages/council...)
• Knowsley (https://www.knowsley.gov.uk/your-council...)
• Liverpool (https://liverpool.gov.uk/council/data-pr...)
• Sefton (https://www.sefton.gov.uk/your-council/o...)
• St Helens (https://www.sthelens.gov.uk/a-to-z/freed...)
• Wirral (https://www.wirral.gov.uk/about-council/...)

I am sorry that we could not be of any further assistance on this occasion.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an internal review, which should be addressed to:
Jill Coule
Chief Legal Officer / Monitoring Officer
Liverpool City Region Combined Authority
[email address]

If you are not content with the result of your internal review, you also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner, whose address is
