Dear Swindon Borough Council,

Please provide the road injury statistics for roads contained within the Parish of Covingham for the years 2014-2019.

Please exclude the 40mph carriageway of Dorcan Way if anything is reported in the dataset.

I have attempted to obtain this information from the DFT, however it is insufficiently granular, only covering Swindon as the overall Statutory Authority

Yours faithfully,

Scott Wichall

Dear Swindon Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Swindon Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Road Injury Statistics - Parish of Covingham'.

There has not even been an acknowledgement of my request which is now approaching 90 days old. Whilst I appreciate staffing issues due to Covid, this is not acceptable.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...

Yours faithfully,

Scott Wichall
