Dear Torridge District Council,
The Association of Play Industries (API) has previously carried out FOI research to establish the extent to which public play areas are being retained, increased or reduced. We would like to update this research with a view to lobbying central government for funding. To that end, we would like to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act:
1. The amount expended in fiscal year 2019 (including any remaining forecasted spending) on public outdoor play facilities including capital, revenue and maintenance costs.
2. The amount budgeted to be spent in fiscal year 2020 on public outdoor play facilities including capital, revenue and maintenance costs.
Thank you for your information request which is receiving attention. We
will respond to your request within the 20 working day statutory deadline.
Please do not reply to this auto acknowledgement.
Thank you for your Freedom of Information Request.

right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original request and should be addressed to: Freedom of Information
