Joe Wyn Griffith made this Freedom of Information request to Chelmsford City Council

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Chelmsford City Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Chelmsford City Council,

I'd be grateful if you can provide me with the following information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

1. A list of vehicles owned or leased to the council. Please include; registration mark, fleet number (if used), make & model and body type.

2. Identify which vehicles are owned and which are leased.

3. Name, position and email address of the staff responsible for these vehicles.

4. The estimated amount of spend (£) on diesel/petrol per annum and the cost split between owned and leased vehicles.

I trust all is in order and thank you in advance for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Joe Wyn Griffith

Dear Joe,

 

I am sending this email in response to your Freedom of Information Act
(2000) request reference IR 7853. Please use this reference in any
subsequent contact relating to this request.

 

Response

1. A list of vehicles owned or leased to the council. Please include;
registration mark, fleet number (if used), make & model and body type.

Please see the attached document.

 

You will notice that some of the information has been removed [vehicle
registration numbers for private vehicles] as this information relates to
other people’s private personal data and is exempt under section 40 of the
Freedom of Information Act ‘personal information’. Further information is
as follows:

 

Information exempt from disclosure

The Council has provided information where possible within the laws, but
some information requested has not been provided as to do so would be a
breach of the first Data Protection Act 2018 Principle:

 

                Personal data shall be processed fairly and lawfully.

 

To provide other individual’s private data would be unlawful under the
Data Protection Act 2018 and therefore this information has been redacted
from the attached documentation.

 

2. Identify which vehicles are owned and which are leased.

Please see the attached document.

 

3. Name, position and email address of the staff responsible for these
vehicles.

There isn’t one specific staff member responsible for vehicles. The main
areas responsible for Council fleet are as follows:

 

Paul Van Damme - Parks and Green Spaces Manager -
[1][email address]

 

Tim Eaton-Fearne - Street Care & Performance Manager -
[2][email address]

 

Peter Masson - Operational Services Manager -
[3][email address]

 

4. The estimated amount of spend (£) on diesel/petrol per annum and the
cost split between owned and leased vehicles.

We don’t hold estimated spend on fuel broken down to the level requested.

 

Right to Internal Review

If you are dissatisfied with this response or with the way your request
has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act, you have the right
to ask for your request to be independently reviewed by the Director of
Corporate Services. You should set out your representations in writing
explaining why you are dissatisfied with this response or the way your
request has been handled and send to [4][email address]. The review
will be conducted in accordance with the Council’s internal review
procedure which is published on its website at
[5]http://www.chelmsford.gov.uk/node/33297. You will be notified of the
outcome of the review as soon as possible and in any event within 20
working days from receipt of your representations.

 

Appeal

If you should still remain dissatisfied following the outcome of the
review, you may apply to the Information Commissioner for a decision by
writing to:

 

Information Commissioner’s Office

Wycliffe House

Water Lane

Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF

Dear Mr Breen

Thank you for the information provided.

In light of Q.4, as you don't have the total fuel bill information split between owned and leased vehicles, the overall total fuel spend for the most recent tax year will be sufficient,

I look forward to receiving this information

Yours sincerely,

Joe Wyn Griffith

Dear Chelmsford City Council

I appreciate there have been major delays caused by Covid-19 this year.

Nonetheless I'd be most grateful if you could forward the information I request on 27 Feb 2020.
