Dear CCR FOI Investigation Team,

I wish to request an internal view as Cheshire East Council have not provided me with information that should be readily available, nor have they properly explained why they believe it is not, neither have they told me where or what relevant information I can have with respect to my request.

I requested:

1) How many road signs have been erected between Holmes Chapel and Knutsford on the A50 in the last 12 years?
2) How much did this cost?
3) How many road signs have been taken down between Holmes Chapel and Knutsford on the A50 in the last 12 years?
4) How much did this cost?

The Council replied that it does not have this level of detail.

There is no reason given why this information is not recorded.

In addition to my original request, I would also like to know:

What level of detail is available with regard to the erection and removal of road signs in a given period and a given area?

Who is charged with completing this work?

How much is allocated for this budget?

Yours sincerely,

P.Shaw
