M Laurent made this Freedom of Information request to Westminster City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Westminster City Council,

I have come across a questionnaire published on your website that covers on-street motorcycle parking. Please find below the link to this questionnaire for your reference.

http://www3.westminster.gov.uk/forms/mot...

My questions are as follows:-

1. Please advise the date when this questionnaire was published on your website as no date is actually shown on the page itself.

2. Please advise who prepared this questionnaire.

3. Please advise the purpose(s) of this questionnaire. I would like to know what the Council intends to do with the responses collected.

4. Please advise how long the questionnaire will remain available on your website, i.e. I would like to know the date when it will be taken off the website.

5. Please advise why question 1 does not have an option for residents as a possible answer. A number of motorcyclists may park in Westminster because they reside in the borough, why is this not an option?

6. Please explain the purpose of question 12 given that motorcycles are not taxed for parking by minute but by day. What is the point in asking about a price per minute when the actual tax is by day and the council has advised that there were no plans to increase the fare in the next 3 years should the tax be made permanent.

Yours faithfully,

M Laurent

Westminster City Council

Dear Customer Relations,

Thank you for your response. I am glad you have realised that this questionnaire was redundant and is going to be deleted as a result. It shows you, your residents and the public in general how poorly maintained Westminster City Council's website is, with out of date contents.

Yours sincerely,

M Laurent
