We're waiting for Evan Howle to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Hertfordshire County Council,

I am looking into finding out about the location of pedestrian crossings in Hertfordshire County Council. Please could you provide me with the following:

1) A list of all the different pedestrian crossings within Hertfordshire County Council boundaries. Including the location of all formal crossings: Zebra, Toucan, Pegasus, Staggered Pelican/Puffin and Toucan crossings.

2) Information on the type of tactile paving used at each site.

3) A list of all lowered kerbs in the Hertfordshire County Council district. Showing the location of each and paying particular attention to the ones intended for use as pedestrian crossing points.

4) The above would ideally include the use of the Geocoordinate system information of each site, but also the street name and location.

The information will be used to provide a complete map of the District to aid in the navigation of Hertfordshire County Council for people with limited mobility or requiring the use of a wheelchair.

Yours faithfully,

Evan Howle

Dear Evan,

 

Reference number: FOI/RAP/11/18/16580

 

Thank you for your correspondence of the 17^th November 2018 which due to
being a Saturday (non-working day) the first day that you request can be
considered as being received is from Monday 19^th November 2018. In your
correspondence you requested the following information:

 

1) A list of all the different pedestrian crossings within Hertfordshire
County Council boundaries. Including the location of all formal crossings:
Zebra, Toucan, Pegasus, Staggered Pelican/Puffin and Toucan crossings.

 

2) Information on the type of tactile paving used at each site.

district. Showing the location of each and paying particular attention to
the ones intended for use as pedestrian crossing points.

 

4) The above would ideally include the use of the Geocoordinate system
information of each site, but also the street name and location. 

 

You made your request under the Freedom of Information Act, but as your
request concerns information that we feel falls within the definition of
Environmental Information and therefore it is more appropriate to respond
to it as an EIR request.  An explanation of Environmental Information
Regulations and your rights to information under it is available on the
Information Commissioner’s website at [1]https://ico.org.uk/ We will
respond to your request as quickly as possible, and by close of 14^th
December 2018 at the latest.
