Dear Kent County Council,

Please can you send me:

A copy of your current road maintenance policy relating to Ide Hill Road. Please send me the full policy, but this should include details of the intended frequency of road safety inspections, how these inspections should be conducted and the maximum time between identification of a defect and repairs being carried out.

A copy of the road repair history for that road over the past year. Again, please send me the full road repair history, but this should include:
dates of all safety inspections between and 1st March and 25th May 2020
details of how safety inspections were undertaken (walked or driven, speed of inspection vehicle etc)
details of all carriageway defects identified, with description, date and time
details of how the authority handled these defects, what repairs were undertaken and the time between the identification of each defect and a repair being carried out.

A copy of the photograph of the pothole that caused a bicycle accident on that road on 25th May 2020, and was reported by the police.

Yours faithfully,

Jonathan Alexander

Dear Kent County Council,

This is a response to the following request for clarification:
"Can you check the dates with the person requesting the FOI, do they mean
2021 or 2020 as is written? Can you also ask the customer for the location
of the incident, nearby road junctions or property names, so that I can
find the information"

I can confirm it is 2020 as written. The location of the incident was on Ide Hill Road between the junctions with Scallops and Coopers Corner.

Yours sincerely,

Jonathan Alexander
