Dear Department for Transport,
Please would you provide me with a list of any authorisations for non-prescribed traffic signs granted by DfT in 2011? The list should include the identity of the traffic authority (or other person) to whom the authorisation was issued, a brief description of the nature of the authorisation, and whatever information is necessary to allow you to identify the authorisation in question. I would expect that you would have an internal catalogue of some sort, and that a copy of that would suffice. I am happy to receive additional information if that saves you effort.
Thanks in advance.
Dear Mr Harris,
I am writing to acknowledge receipt of your request for information which has been allocated reference number P0008517. A response will be issued to you in due course.

Dear Ms Tracey,
Thank you. I'm very pleased to hear of your plans to (presumably routinely) publish lists of traffic sign authorisations, and look forward to hearing from you when it's done.
Good afternoon Ben
I am writing to confirm that we have just sent the list of authorisations that we issued last year to our web team for placing on the website and we anticipate that it will be available for viewing from tomorrow morning at the very earliest - if there is a problem in loading the information, it may be that it will go live early next week.
Please note that not every authorisation has been scanned as yet, the majority have been, but we are still working through the remaining documents and these will be added to the site as soon as possible.
