Road repairs in Neston

Ross made this Freedom of Information request to Cheshire West and Chester Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Cheshire West and Chester Council,

Please could you provide me with, preferably as a CSV file (or XLS at a push):

- a list of road repairs that have been carried out in the Neston area in the last 3 years, I am particularly interested in the location of those repairs, so lat/lng where available would be great, road name would do if that isn't available.

- a list of road repairs that have been requested for Neston in the last 3 years. Again preferably with lat/lng or road names if the lat/lng isn't available.

- a list of road repairs that have been carried out in the Tatton area in the last 3 years, I am particularly interested in the location of those repairs, so lat/lng where available would be great, road name would do if that isn't available.

- a list of road repairs that have been requested for Tatton in the last 3 years. Again preferably with lat/lng or road names if the lat/lng isn't available.

I did make a request via your open data site but didn't receive any form of response, hence my request as an FOI.

Yours faithfully,

Ross Jones

Cheshire West and Chester Council

FOI East,

Dear Mr Jones

Thank you for your email, that has been forwarded to me by Cheshire West & Chester Council, who I understand have answered the portion of the request relating to their area.

It will be treated as a request for information within the meaning of the Freedom of Information Act: this means that we will send you a full response within 20 working days, either supplying you with the information which you want, or explaining to you why we cannot supply it. If during this time this request is identified as a request under Environmental Information Regulations, then a further 20 working days may be applicable. If we need any further clarification or there is any problem we will be in touch.

In the meantime if you wish to discuss this further please contact me. It would be helpful if you could quote the log number 806824.

FOI East,

Dear Mr Jones

Further to your request, I have been asked to clarify with you what particular area you are interested in within Cheshire East. We know you are enquiring about the Tatton area, but is it the Tatton Constituency specifically, or the whole of Cheshire East? Without knowing what Cheshire West have supplied it is difficult for us to narrow down your requirements. Although the Tatton area is large, if it is just Street History Reports you require, we might be able to supply these, being mindful of the 18-hour time limit for FOI requests.

I will put your request on hold for now, and hope to hear from you shortly.

Yours sincerely

Martin Johnson
Customer Relations & Compliance
Cheshire East Council

Dear Martin,

Yes, the information specifically for Tatton Constituency would be good. If it is easier to provide the whole of Cheshire East then that is acceptable.

Cheshire West were reasonably quickly able to supply me with information specifically for the Neston area. You can see the data they provided at https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r... and it consists of:

A timestamp
A short description of the work.
The location of the work

Yours sincerely,

RossJones.
