Dear Richmond upon Thames Borough Council,

Please tell me, using data from the Richmond Card:
1. How many cards have been issued.
2. How many journeys were made using those cards? (broken down by year and, if possible, month)
3. What is the average distance from the home postcode of each card to the station used to pay for the parking? (I'm not seeking to know the post codes or locations - I'm trying to find out how far people travel from their home to use their parking discount.)

Also, can you tell me what other data the council holds about car trips in the borough. Specifically I’m interested in any analysis or raw data about average journey lengths, frequency, and schedules.

Many thanks,

Tim Lennon.

Dear Richmond upon Thames Borough Council,

With reference to number two, please would you then supply the number of occasions that cards have been used, and the length of each parking visit.

With reference to car journeys, I find it hard to believe that the council holds no data whatsoever on the usage of cars in the borough. If you do not believe you hold this information, please explain how transport planning in the borough happens: what data is used to decide on changes to roads, road layout, access, etc.?

Yours faithfully,

Tim Lennon
