Dear Mr Harris,
Further to your request for information under The Freedom Of Information Act. I have been informed by the department that they will need extra time to collate the information requested.
'Based on the title, we'll report on street lighting (maintenance), traffic signs (maintenance), bollards (reactive) and guardrails (reactive). We can only report on the items we have data for, so as the term street furniture is very wide, without specifics this may prove difficult and we may not have the data'.
As such the department plans to carry some analysis of data held and provide as much as possible, which will take some time. They expect to have this ready by the end of next week. However if you have any further details that could minimise the time required I can pass this onto the department. i.e. a list of Assets/Features he is interested in Street Lights, Bollards, Signs, Guardrails etc
Apologies again for the delay.
Dear Alison ,
The street furniture referred to is in the parish of Southwell:
street lamp standards [heritage]
street lamp standards [main road medium height [not sure of height]]
street lamp standards [main road tall [not sure of height]]
pedestrian guard rails on pavement/road side [in built up area of Southwell]
pedestrian guard rails on footpaths side [in built up area of Southwell]
road signs [in built up area of Southwell]
other information signs [in built up area of Southwell]
description of what street furniture NCC considers itself to be the owner of, and bears responsibility for
This list therefore, excludes:
street lamp standards [side roads]
road signs [outside the built up area of Southwell]
other street furniture outside the built up area of Southwell
items not in the ownership of NCC
Dear Mr Harris,
Thank you very much I shall forward to department without delay.
