You asked

I wish to put in an FOI request for copies of correspondence between TFL and 3 Councillors in the London Borough of Merton concerning traffic in the Kingston Road Sw19 area in connection with the increased number of trams going across the road. My understanding is that TFL proposed a number of measures to reduce delays on the Kingston Road which they consulted local councillors on and there was an objection from one of them to a proposal to ban cars turning left into Hartfeld Road I would like a copy of any e mails with those councillors and notes of any meetings and any e mails between TFL staff about the comments on the proposals. I do not have an exact date but it is before August 2015. The 3 Councillors are: David Dean,Suzanne Grocott and Michael Bull

Thank you for your request received on 3 October 2017 asking for information about traffic on Kingston Road.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can confirm we hold some of the information you require.

Please see the attached e-mail chain, this is the document we have been able to locate that is captured by your request.

Please note that in accordance with TfL’s obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) some personal data has been removed, as required by section 40(2) of the FOI Act. This is because disclosure of this personal data would be a breach of the DPA, specifically the first principle of the DPA which requires all processing of personal data to be fair and lawful. It would not be fair to disclose this personal information when the individuals have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions of Schedule 2 of the Data Protection Act which would make the processing ‘fair’.

This exemption to the right of access to information is an absolute exemption and not subject to an assessment of whether the public interest favours use of the exemption.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
