Dear Merton Borough Council,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Merton Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Traffic Management Order Upper Green East'.

Although details of the traffic order have been supplied the order is not legal until the change or order has been received by the Police. Also any changes MUST be notified in the local gazette.

I have requested these two further documents to be supoplied to show the legality of the bus lane and these have not been supplied as requested or in the time frame allowed by the information commisioner. I would like copies of these two documents sent to me as requested and hereby give you a further 7 days to respond befoire I initiate a complaint to the information comissioners office.

If you are unable to supply these document I will pass a claim to my solicitor for an "illegal fine" that I have settled whilst holding my right to appeal, and for all costs involved/incurred.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Juan Soto

Dear Mr Soto,

As far as I can tell we have answered your original request in full, as it is recorded on whatdotheyknow.com. However, the 2 further documents that you state you have requested and not received in your email below, do not seem to be reflected in the record linked to on whatdotheyknow.

Please tell me what these 2 further documents are and when you requested them, and if possible provide a copy of this request. Once I have these details from you I will be able to pass this matter onto the Officer responsible for internal reviews.

Kind regards,

Rosalind Girdlestone

Dear foi,

My request was for the original order made on the bus lane. The bus lane was extended a further 50 meters which is what your reply is relating to. This doesn't cover the original traffic management order of the bus lane.

I would like copies of the ORIGINAL order and not the extension of 50 meters, and also the adverts and a copy of the letter to the ORIGINAL order when the bus lane was put in.

Yours sincerely,

Juan Soto

Dear Mr Soto,

The correct Traffic Management Order is attached, please accept my apology
for sending you the incorrect order previously. 

Regrettably, we are unable to provide you with copies of the adverts for
this Order.  This is because these are not held, as they date back to 2001
and we only retain paperwork for 6 years.  We are also unable to provide
you with a copy of the letter sent to the police for this Order.  This is
because this is not held, as these are standard format letters and copies
are not retained. 

Yours sincerely,

Rosalind Girdlestone
