Survey of roadside litter on HE trunk roads (2)

Peter Silverman made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs,

Please refer once again to:

https://www.theyworkforyou.com/wrans/?id...

and Rebecca Pow's statement:

"In 2018, Defra commissioned an independent survey of roadside litter on those parts of the Strategic Road Network (SRN) where Highways England is responsible for maintenance but the local authority is responsible for clearing litter. The results have been shared with relevant local authorities and will be used in policy development."

1. How many local authorities (LAs) were the results shared with?

2. Over what time period were the communications sent?

3. On the assumption standard wording was used for all communications please provide a copy of that wording (i.e. without the names of the LAs and highways being revealed).

4. If a questionnaire was sent to the LAs to obtain feedback please send me a copy of it?

5. How many LAs have returned the questionnaires?

6. How many LAs have otherwise replied?

Peter Silverman

Yours faithfully,

Peter Silverman
