Dear FOI,

Thank you for your reply.

Could I please ask a question about the Risk Assessment provided by CCC under Appendix 5 of the FOI.
It appears to only relate to erecting and removing signs on the highway... only 1 page supplied.

Could you confirm that is all the RA supplied form the Fitzwilliam took into account for this event.
It is possible that the further pages have not been attached by error, if so could please forward them to me. Thank-you

Could you please supply any additional pages ..

I understand that personal information as per Section 40 may be redacted or with-held if it relates to a named individual. However, I cannot see how this would need to be done for the risk assessment?

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOI,

Appreciate your reply. It appears your understanding of what & where the event is staged is different from the actual location.

You are incorrect in that the event is held on PRIVATE LAND it is on PUBLIC HIGHWAY which is why the road is closed under TTRO.

The HIGHWAY is closed and the meeting lasts for over an hour ,the road is closed for longer. It is a social event held on PUBLIC HIGHWAY and as such needs correct Risk assessment, traffic management, event plans. These are needed to inform and protect ALL members of the public not just people attending the event.

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOI,
Thank you. I think I will ask the questions another way.
I am reluctant to go ICO .
My issue is with the interpretation & location and not the information you have provided.

Yours sincerely,

P A GADD
