Dear Mr Roberts,


Thank you for your enquiry, which has been forwarded to the appropriate
officers for a response. The usual timescale for a response is twenty
working days, that is by or on 13.12.18.


If for any reason the Council needs to extend this timescale you will be
notified in accordance with the relevant legislation.


Please note that in 2012 the County Council adopted a position in
principle that FoI and EIR requests to West Sussex County Council and the
Council's responses may be published on the Council's website in a
suitably anonymised form. This is in addition to the individual response
to the requestor, and in line with the Council's commitment to
transparency and open data.   


Yours sincerely,


Helen Thompson.

Dear Mr Roberts


I refer to your request dated 14 November 2018, which has been dealt with
under the Freedom of Information Act.


Your request related to Public Rights of Ways (Byways) that have Traffic
Regulation Orders (TROs) on them preventing vehicle access.


We have now completed a search for the information which you requested and
I confirm the Authority does not hold information relevant to the request.


The TRO Team is unable to help with this specific request because although
we keep an index of highway affected by our TROs, this does not record the
highway designation type of the individual routes affected.  It would not
therefore be possible to identify whether we have made TROs on highway
designated as byways as we do not presently record the information
requested, and therefore we cannot disclose it.

The information supplied to you continues to be protected by the
Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. You are free to use it for your
own purposes, including any non-commercial research you are doing and for
the purposes of news reporting. Any other reuse, for example commercial
publication, would require the permission of the copyright holder. Most
documents supplied by us will be copyright of West Sussex County Council.


Information you receive which is not subject to WSCC continues to be
protected by the copyright of the person, or organisation, from which the
information originated. You must ensure that you gain their permission
before reproducing any third party (non WSCC) information.


If you have any queries about any of this information, please contact me.

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you may
wish to ask for a review of our decision via the [1][email address


If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally,
the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted our internal
review procedure. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

The Information Commissioner's Office,

Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.
