If possible, please include the additional information alongside each partner:

* date or year the scheme was initiated.
* number of signs installed (if possible broken down by type)
* financial contribution from the partner.
* financial contribution from TfL

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Roberto

 

TfL Ref: FOI-0304-1819

 

Thank you for your email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 4 May
2018.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm we hold some of the information you require. You asked:

 

Please could I request a list of the partners with whom you have worked on
schemes for Legible London signage, for example councils (eg Camden) and
developers (eg Canary Wharf Group)?

 

Please find this information in the attached spreadsheet. However, as the
vast majority of Legible London schemes are led by London boroughs, they
might work with a range of external partners without TfL having visibility
of this.

 

Please note data provided in the table is accurate to December 2017.

 

If possible, please include the additional information alongside each
partner:

 

* date or year the scheme was initiated.

 

Please see attached. We have used the year the first sign in the borough
was installed. Some boroughs have multiple location schemes that commenced
in many different years.

 

* number of signs installed (if possible broken down by type)

 

Please see attached.

 

* financial contribution from the partner

 

Almost all Legible London schemes are funded by London boroughs and/or
external partners. We do not hold this information. I would recommend you
contact the boroughs to provide this information.

 

* financial contribution from TfL

 

TfL highway projects do implement Legible London signs as part of the
changes delivered through these individual projects. The cost of Legible
London signs, as part of these projects, cannot reasonably be broken down
given the scale and breadth of our highway portfolio. Therefore, to
provide this information would exceed the ‘appropriate limit’ of £450 set
by the Freedom of Information (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations
2004.

 

Under section 12 of the FOI Act, we are not obliged to comply with a
request if we estimate that the cost of determining whether we hold the
information, locating and retrieving it and extracting it from other
information would exceed the appropriate limit. This is calculated at £25
per hour for every hour spent on the activities described. However, in
this instance we are providing the remainder of the information you have
requested separately to this refusal notice.

 

It should be noted that the vast majority of Legible London signs are
installed and owned by the boroughs and our information accuracy is
dependent on the data they supply to us.

 

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.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
