Thank you for your request received by us on 27 July 2022 asking about Cromwell Road.
As this is a live scheme we are currently unable to provide detailed information on the requested budgets. This is because disclosure of the requester information would be likely to prejudice our commercial interests and is therefore exempt in accordance with section 43(2) of the FOI Act. However, please see the summarised budgets below which I hope will be of assistance to you:
Design = £15k - £30k Construction; including licences, diversions and internal costs = £1.25m - £1.40m
The application of the exemption set out in section 43(2) of the FOI Act is subject to the public interest test. Whilst we appreciate the inherent public interest in transparency, particularly in financial matters, we consider that the balance of public interest supports the application of this exemption to ensure that we continue to achieve best value for money in this scheme whilst also meeting our transparency commitment through the provision of the information provided above.
If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.
