Freedom of Information Act, West Sussex County Council

Dear Mr Saunders,

Thank you for your telephone call advising me that Highways England have advised you that your request is for the County Council to respond to.

I apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Your request has therefore been forwarded to the appropriate officers for a response. The usual timescale for a response is twenty working days, that is by or on 13th April.

If for any reason the Council needs to extend this timescale you will be notified in accordance with the relevant legislation.

Please note that in 2012 the County Council adopted a position in principle that FoI and EIR requests to West Sussex County Council and the Council's responses may be published on the Council's website in a suitably anonymised form. This is in addition to the individual response to the requestor, and in line with the Council's commitment to transparency and open data.

I also wish to mention that I have asked that team to clarify why we are responsible for this area of Highway so that we can avoid misdirecting people in future.

Yours sincerely,

Kerry Rickman

I refer to your request dated 14th March 2018 which has been dealt with
under the Freedom Of Information Act 2000.

We have now completed a search for the information which you requested and
confirm that this Authority holds some data relevant to your request.

I am now able to respond to you with the following:

 

Please also send copies of your policies and timescales, including policy
for temporary repairs, for reported damage as well as your inspection
schedule for the same road.

 

Please see attached:-

In this Freedom of Information request, you asked us for of all
communication and correspondence with both internal and external parties
of any paperwork of logs of any reported potholes and road damage, as well
as information pertaining to the repair of such for A23 London Road
(Northbound), Horley from 1st February to 28th February 2018.

 

I can confirm that the Authority holds information falling within the
description specified in your request. However, we estimate that the cost
of complying with your request would exceed the appropriate limit of £450.
The appropriate limit has been specified in regulations and for local
authorities it is set at £450. This represents the estimated cost of one
person spending 2 1/2 working days in determining whether the Department
holds the information, and locating, retrieving and extracting the
information. Under section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act the
Department is not obliged to comply with your request and we will not be
processing your request further.

the Data Protection Act 1998 have been met.
