Dear Helen Feta

Re: Freedom of Information Act 2000
Environmental Information Regulations 2004
Reference No: 8450317

Thank you for your request for information held by London Borough of Lewisham. I have included below a copy of your request, followed by the Council’s response.

For the period 01/04/2018 to 31/03/2019, please could you tell me:

* The total number of pay and display parking tickets or transactions sold (all payment methods)

We confirm that London Borough of Lewisham, does not record the requested information

* The total pay and display income (Cash, Credit/Debit card, Mobile App)

Please refer to the attached excel spreadsheet

* Total number of pay and display parking tickets or transactions sold via a Mobile App parking payment provider

Please refer to the attached excel spreadsheet

* Total pay and display income processed via a Mobile App parking payment provider

Please refer to the attached excel spreadsheet

Finally, in relation to the Council’s current Mobile App parking payment provider, could you tell me:

* What is the contract expiry date for your Mobile App parking payment provider, including any extension periods?

* What is the current notice period required in order for the Council to exit this contract?

* What is the current contract value, annualised over the period 01/04/2018 – 31/03/2019?

We apply Section 43 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, 'Commercial interests', to your request (details below).

Section 43 states:
(1) Information is exempt information if it constitutes a trade secret.
(2) Information is exempt information if its disclosure under this Act would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of any person (including the public authority holding it).
(3) The duty to confirm or deny does not arise if, or to the extent that, compliance with section 1(1)(a) would, or would be likely to, prejudice the exemptions mentioned in subsection (2).

This acts as an exemption notice. We have applied this exemption as Section 43 (1-2) because the information relates to intellectual property i.e. trade secrets and commercially sensitive information.

This is a qualified exemption and requires the consideration of a public interest test. In this case we have considered that the public interest favours non-disclosure. The commercially sensitive information which your request relates to, if released to the general public could jeopardise the commercial interests of the Council and third parties by providing an unfair advantage in any current or future commercial negotiations.

We hope you will find this information helpful.

You are free to use the information provided for your own purposes, including any non-commercial research you are doing and for the purposes of news reporting. Any other re-use, for example commercial publication, requires the permission of the copyright holder. You may apply for permission to re-use this information by submitting a request to [email address]

You have a right of appeal against this response which you can exercise by writing to:: [email address]

This must be requested within 40 working days of the date of this response.

If you remain dissatisfied after receiving this decision, you then also have a further right of appeal, which you can make in writing, stating your reasons to the regulating body, the Information Commissioner's Office. Contact details are outlined below:
