Transport documents regarding Picketts Lock Station

Philip Ridley made this Freedom of Information request to Sport England

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.

We're waiting for Philip Ridley to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Sport England,

Thank you for the documents that you previous released.

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p...

I wish to commence a further FOI request for documents that these documents reference, because they are what I need. I need the evidence of the case for a station at Picketts Lock so that I and others in the London Borough of Enfield can lobby Crossrail 2 to include a station at Picketts Lock in their plans. There remains enough space on this site for substantial increase in athletics provision, the outdoor running track could be a 45,000 seat stadium still, as per the 2005 World Athletics Competition plans.

Also, London Borough of Enfield have a Supplementary Planning Document for the site identifying potential for hockey, ice skating and even snowdrome.

https://new.enfield.gov.uk/services/plan...

And The Wave are planning a huge surfing lagoon, that will be the worlds first for a capital city: https://www.leevalleypark.org.uk/en/cont...

The previous assessments were based on a two track mainline, which was found to be unfeasible due to limited capacity but if the Lea Valley Mainline can be quad tracked either for Crossrail 2 or a classic railway line to Liverpool Street via Stratford, a station can be placed at Picketts Lock, with an eastern entrance for the athletic centre and also a western entrance at Goodwin Road for the more than 60,000 residents of the N9 postcode, Lower Edmonton, which would otherwise be bypassed by Crossrail 2, because Ponders End and Meridian Water are distant from this densely populated area. A station here could also provide a walking and cycling bridge from Lower Edmonton to the athletic centre crossing above the railway and A1055.

I am seeking please the following documents referenced in the email correspondance you previously provided, which are not within the Patrick Carter review document:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p...

- Draft and Final Transport Assessment
- Draft and Final Transport Strategy Report
- Draft and Final Rail Strategy
- Preferred transport strategy
- Rail Issues Paper
- Rail Issues Technical Working Paper

Also, if you have it:
- Proposals to improve the pedestrian route from Ponders End Station to the Stadium and to upgrade the attractiveness of the station

Dear Sport England,

I forgot to add that the other interim solution is quad tracking to Brimsdown, location of the first level crossing, with turn-back provision there. We already have plans for two tracks to Meridian Water and so extending it a couple miles further north opens up not only Picketts Lock and Ponders End but also provides metro services to Brimsdown, London's second largest industrial estate.

I did get draft track layouts for this solution from Network Rail but what is missing is business case work on a station at Picketts Lock that we can use to get them to do a fresh business case for the station. They have claimed thus far that no business case has ever been done, which is false.

Yours faithfully,

Philip Ridley

Dear Mr Ridley

 

Thank you for your two emails in which you request Transport documents
regarding Picketts Lock Station. Your emails were received on 1 September
2020 and have been passed to me as I am responsible for responding to
requests for information held by Sport England. 

 

As a public body, Sport England is subject to the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004
and we will handle your request in accordance with their terms. We will
provide you with our full response promptly and usually within twenty
working days. In some circumstances we may extend this to allow us to
consider the public interest; if this is necessary in your case I will
write to you again and explain why.

 

At this stage it is important to advise you that Sport England, just like
many other organisations and the nation generally, is dealing with the
severe impact of the coronavirus pandemic on human, physical and
technological resources. These impacts have led to delays in the delivery
of our timescales. Should this affect the delivery of a response to your
request we will advise you and request an extension.

 

I will be in touch again in due course and in any event not later than 28
September 2020. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me if I can
be of any further assistance.

 

Kind regards

Dear Mr Ridley

 

I write further to your email below and request for information.

 

We have carefully checked all the information held in our Archives related
to this matter and have located two documents (attached) which fall within
the scope of your request.

 

As you can see we have redacted personal information from one of the
documents as we consider this information to be exempt from disclosure
under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The names and
direct email addresses of our non-senior, non-public facing staff and
stakeholders constitutes personal data as defined by the Data Protection
Act 2018. Our stakeholders have a reasonable expectation of privacy and
would not expect us to make information about their working lives public.
As such, disclosure of this information would be neither fair nor lawful
and in direct contravention of the first data protection principle.

 

Please note that Sport England does not hold the other documents listed in
your request OR any other information related to the Transport Assessment
for Picketts Lock Station.

 

This completes our response to your information request.

 

As a public body, Sport England is subject to the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and this means you are entitled to complain if you
are unhappy with the way we have handled your information request and/or
ask us to review our decision.

or ask for our decision to be reviewed please contact:

dissatisfaction and include an address for correspondence. All internal
reviews are carried out by a colleague who has not previously been
involved in the handling of your information request. We aim to complete
internal reviews within twenty working days.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of our Internal Review you have
the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner. Generally speaking
the Information Commissioner will not be able to consider an appeal unless
you have first exhausted the Internal Review procedure provided by Sport

Dear Mr Ridley

 

I write further to your email below.

 

I should explain that Sport England is an arms-length body, of the
Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, primarily responsible
for growing and developing grassroots sport and getting more people active
across England. We were established by Royal Charter
 ([1]https://sportengland-production-files.s3...)
– which is an instrument of incorporation granted by the Queen – in 1996
as the English Sports Council and we do not have the remit to assist you
in pursuing you describe in your email below.  

 

However it is open to you to consider contacting the Ministry of Transport
who may be better placed to assist you. Please see  below a link to their
website.
