Dear Sir or Madam,
Please could you explain how Cllr. Chalkley is able to state that
the Parking Charges for Motorcycles and other powered two wheelers
are "revenue neutral" when by Westminster City Council's own
figures they had raised over £2,000,000 with a cost of £323,000?
How much does it cost to "convert" a car parking bay to a
motorcycle bay?
What "parking projects" are are going to benefit from the profits
raised from this scheme? I would like detailed information to
include where the project is, which (if any)Company is/will be
contracted to carry out the work, and how much it costs & how much
money WCC expect to raise from each "project"?

Yours faithfully,
Richard Brown

Quote-marks Is the oldest FOI without receiving an answer from Westminster?

Perhaps Westminster could have yet another review into it's FOI policy.
