Dear Edward Callow



Re: Request for information dated 17 January 2022 under the Freedom of
Information Act


I write in connection with your above request where you asked:


I’m writing to request the total number of:


(a) fixed speed cameras in your jurisdiction by location authority name


(b) active, working speed cameras in your jurisdiction by local authority



Our response:



As some old fixed cameras belong to the Local Authorities, we do not hold
this information in full.


Insofar as we do hold information in relation to this question, we can
confirm that this is already available in the public domain and therefore
falls within the Section 21 exemption of the Freedom of Information Act. 
Section 21 is an absolute and class based exemption and as such does not
require a harm or public interest test.


Please visit [2]this link for access to the information you have


This serves as a (partial) refusal notice under section 17(1) of the FOI



This information changes on a daily basis.  As of 17 January 2022, please
