Dear Mr Stocker,

Our ref: FOI-1954-1718

Thank you again for your email received by us on 17 October 2017 asking for information about LIP annual reports.

Your request is being considered under the terms of the Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs).

Unfortunately because of its complexity, we will be unable to resolve your request within the initial statutory 20 working day deadline as we have to consult with a number of boroughs.

To enable us to fully consider your request, in accordance with the EIRs we have had to extend the deadline for providing a response to 40 working days from the date we received your request. The amended date for a final response is now 13 December 2017. We are working hard to ensure that you receive a response before this date.

I apologise for the delay and any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have any queries or would like to discuss your request, please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you are not satisfied with this response, please read the attached help-sheet entitled ‘Your Right to Appeal’

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOI,

The 13th December was 40 days since the original request and I have been given no indication of when this information will be provided. I had understood that by law TfL should have provided the information requested but have not. If there is a reason why this information can't be provided (or at least some of the info) why can't this be provided. All I have is a vague promise that the information will be provided at some future date.

I had also understood that by requesting a internal review I would not have to state reasons why, just that TfL have not met the timescales stated in law. Have I misunderstood the FOI process?

Yours sincerely,

Roger Stocker

Dear Mr Stocker

IRV-133-1718

Thank you for your request for an internal review which was received on 8 January 2018.

You have stated that you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.

The review will be conducted by an internal review panel in accordance with TfL’s Internal Review Procedure, which is available via the following URL:

http://content.tfl.gov.uk/internal-revie...

Every effort will be made to provide you with a response by 6 February 2018. However, if the review will not be completed by this date, we will contact you and notify you of the revised response date as soon as possible.

In the meantime, if you would like to discuss this matter further, please feel free to contact me.

Dear Mr Stocker

IRV-133-1718

I am contacting you regarding the internal review of your request for information concerning LIP Annual Report information (FOI-1954-1718).

Regulation 5(2) of the Environment Information Regulations advises that ‘Information shall be made available under paragraph (1) as soon as possible and no later than 20 working days after the date of receipt of the request'.

Subsequently Regulation 7(1) of the Environmental Information Regulations advises that 'Where a request is made under regulation 5, the public authority may extend the period of 20 working days referred to in the provisions in paragraph (2) to 40 working days if it reasonably believes that the complexity and volume of the information requested means that it is impracticable either to comply with the request within the earlier period or to make a decision to refuse to do so'.

It is clear that in failing to provide you with a response within the extended period of 40 working days, TfL has breached the requirements of Regulation 5(2) and 7(1) of the EIR's, and on behalf of TfL, please accept our sincere apologies for the shortcomings in the handling of your request. We will always try to provide a response as quickly as we can and no later than the advised response date which in this case was the 13 December 2017. However we are a large organisation and the FOI Case Management team are reliant upon the appropriate team to provide the information sought within a timely manner. In this instance your request is particularly complex in nature and necessary checks need to be carried out to ensure that the response we provided is both complete and accurate.

The Panel appreciate that you frustrated with the continued delay and the issue of your response still being outstanding has been escalated to the Information Access Manager who is working with the relevant business team within TfL and we will endeavour to provide your response as soon as possible.

However once you have received our response, we do not consider that this necessarily represents the end of the internal review process. We consider that it would be appropriate in the context of this request to offer you a further internal review of the content of the response to FOI-1954-1718 if you choose, even though you have already exercised your right to a review in view of our failure to provide a timely response.

Therefore once you have received it, if you are not satisfied with the final response provided to FOI-1954-1718 please contact [TfL request email]. Again the Panel offer our sincere apologies for the delay in providing a response.

If you are dissatisfied with the internal review actions to date (IRV-133-1718) you can refer the matter to the independent authority responsible for enforcing the Environmental Information Regulations, at the following address:

Information Commissioner’s Office
Wycliffe House
Water Lane
Wilmslow
Cheshire SK9 5AF

A complaint form is also available on the ICO’s website (www.ico.org.uk).

Dear FOI,

I requested this information for previous years and this was provided (https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/l...) I also requested information for TAD's data. Boroughs should have provided information by late July. I would be happy for part of the information and a indication as to what the delay is.

Yours sincerely,

Roger Stocker

Dear FOI,

Given that its nearly 3 months since your last communication with me on this FOI should I be escalating this outside your organisation or will I hear back soon, whether from the internal review team or the team responsible for supplying the information?

Yours sincerely,

Roger Stocker

Dear Mr Stocker

I am contacting you further to my email of 16 April where I advised that your request for an internal review would be taken forward. Unfortunately this email was sent to you in error for which I very sorry.

As you have already exercised your right to an internal review regarding the delay in receiving a response to your request (FOI-1954-1718) which was responded to on 21 January 2018, I am unable to conduct another review at this stage.

Understandably you are frustrated at the continued delay in receiving a response to your request and I offer my sincere apologies in the shortcomings of the handling of your request. We have recently had a change of individual in the role of Information Access Manager and I will now be escalating the issue of your outstanding FOI request to him for further investigation.

As advised previously, if you are dissatisfied with the final response that we provide to FOI-1954-1718 when received then you will be given the opportunity to make another internal review appeal.

If I can assist you further please contact [TfL request email]

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Stocker,

 

Our ref: FOI-1954-1617

 

Thank you for your email received on 17 October 2017 asking for
information about LIP Annual Reports. I apologise for the delay in
replying to you.

 

Your request has been processed in accordance with the requirements of the
Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. You asked:

 

1) Please could you provide me with the final LIP Annual Report on
Interventions and Outputs for each London borough for the year 2016/17. As
Attached

2) Schemes identified by boroughs to be entered on Traffic Accident Diary
System (TADS), by borough for 2016/17. As attached

3) Schemes identified by the following boroughs to be entered on Traffic
Accident Diary System (TADS), for 2016/17 (omitted from previous FOI)
Greenwich; Tower Hamlets; Lambeth; Southwark; Kingston; Richmond;
Hammersmith & Fulham. These are not available as we are still reviewing
the submissions received from the Boroughs.

4) Completed TADS forms, including data from 2015/16 TADS list for each
London borough. As attached.

 

Seasonal matching data considers like for like months before and after
implementation. This helps to take into account school holidays when the
traffic is lighter and also weather conditions and times of darkness. So,
if a scheme was implemented from April to May then the first month of
after data will be June and the first month of before data will be June
the previous year before construction. The construction period is not
included in the monitoring period due to the possibility of temporary
signals/temporary road layout changes.

Once schemes reach the end of the 36 month monitoring period they still
remain on the database, with the before and after collisions still shown
as what it was at the end of the 36 month period – which is the standard
for before and after monitoring. For example, schemes with an
implementation date back as far as 2009 finished their monitoring period
in 2012 and are now five years outside of the monitoring period.

 

Caveats:

-Central (Kensington and Chelsea) Schemes such as ‘Area around South
Kensington Station’ or ‘Exhibition Road’, have been in for many years and
conditions will have moved on by now.

 

-Central (Westminster) It is advised that the following table solely
relates to the number of Casualty Related Accidents and not the wider
context where there have been other substantial background rises in
pedestrian footfall, cycling and other road users that have occurred in
the areas of interest. Such background increases in pedestrians and other
road users mean that the proportionality of the increases in some of the
recorded casualties is significantly/ if not substantially lower in
context.

 

-South (Richmond Upon Thames) The last collision column has been redacted
as a right turn filter recently been implemented to mitigate collisions.

 

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
