Dear Mr Stocker

 

Our ref: FOI-3002-1718/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 21
January 2018 asking for information about the Healthy Streets Portfolio
Board.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that
we do hold the information you require.

 

TfL has brought together all of its streets spending into a new £2.1bn
Healthy Streets portfolio to ensure that, with borough partners, streets
investment is directed towards delivering against the Healthy Streets
Indicators. This new approach to investment is overseen by a Healthy
Streets Portfolio Board, bringing together decision-makers from across
TfL, as well as from City Hall. The Board will assess investment decisions
against the Healthy Streets Indicators, using the Health Economic
Assessment Tool for walking and cycling and a new Healthy Streets Check on
every scheme. You can find more information on Healthy Streets here:
[1]http://content.tfl.gov.uk/healthy-street...

 

Please find attached the information you have requested.

 

Please note that financial information has been redacted from the attached
documents as it is subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access
to information under section 43(2). In this instance the section 43(2)
exemption has been applied as disclosure would, or would be likely to
prejudice our commercial interests, and could hinder TfL’s ability to
negotiate the best value for money for similar services in the future.

 

The use of this exemption is subject to an assessment of the public
interest in relation to the disclosure of the information concerned. We
recognise the need for openness and transparency by public authorities,
particularly where the expenditure of public money is concerned, but in
this instance the public interest in ensuring that we are able to obtain
the best value for public money outweighs the general public interest in
increasing transparency of our processes.

 

Additonally, in accordance with TfL’s obligations under the Data
Protection Act 1998 (DPA), personal information such as signatures and
direct telephone numbers have been removed from the documents, as required
by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of this
personal data would be a breach of the DPA, specifically the first
principle of the DPA which requires all processing of personal data to be
fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal
information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed
and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions of Schedule 2 of the Data
Protection Act which would make the processing ‘fair’.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
