FOI request detail

Accident at A312 The Parkway (Heston West)

Request ID: FOI-2646-1819
Date published: 09 January 2019

You asked

follow up from FOI-2383-1819 - Can I confirm who the private owners are of the fallen tree and the land surrounding it? I trust that if Tfl is investigating the bridge for any damages they will be contacting this third party for relief, and so you will hold this information.

We answered


TfL Ref: FOI-2646-1819

Thank you for your further email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 7 January.

Your request has been processed in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and TfL’s information access policy. 

We do hold details of the owner of the fallen tree, however, because disclosure of this information would lead to the individual being identified, we have taken the decision to withhold this information.

Therefore we are withholding the requested information under Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act. Personal data it is exempt from disclosure under this exemption, because disclosure of the personal data would be a breach of of Article 5 (1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation, which requires personal data to be processed lawfully, fairly and transparently. It would not be fair to disclose this personal information when the individual have no expectation it would be disclosed and TfL has not satisfied one of the conditions in Article 6 necessary to determine that the processing is ‘lawful’.

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.

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

Yours sincerely
