Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Beer in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up,  totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a  ride!!"

This sounds to me like something the Police should be informed of when it happens.

Just sent another FOI off to "Whatdotheyknow.com".
I know that Hackney's Vito van wasn't displaying a valid tax disc (until at least 5th May) as I have picture evidence, so I thought I'd find out how many PCNs were issued during that 5 day spell.  :-ev-: . Let's see how they long they delay on this one.
http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/pcns_issued_for_passing_through

@BH saw the reply to your FOI mate W:T:F: What planet are they on? They've just totally ignored your questions! Good for you for keeping at them. I intend to do the same - there's something not right here :bashy:

@Boyo

Their reply came into my Iphone whilst I was in Richmond yesterday PM but when I looked at it I thought my Iphone was not showing the full reply W:T:F: So when I got home I opened it up and low and behold as you saw, they have merely supplied the TMO and NOT answered the questions I put to them. This is clearly a delay tac tic for them to be able to say "Well we did answer within the 20 days" B/S and they probably hope the matter will go away...........LIKE FECK!!!!! :-ev-:
 :-ev-: :-ev-: :-ev-: I aint going anywhere and I want answers :-ev-: >:D

So Islington seem to allow Hackney to park their CCTV van in their jurisdiction using the same excuse. In short, ANY LA CCTV car can NOW park in any borough it seems :rotfl: :rotfl:


 
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request, received on 13 May 2011.
 
You requested that we provide you copies of all minutes of meetings regarding the provision of parking dispensation for Hackney Council’s CCTV Enforcement vehicles to park within the borough of Islington.  As well as all internal emails and external emails.
 
I can advise you that there have been no meetings or e-mail exchanges relating to the dispensation to park for LB Hackney CCTV vehicles. This would not be necessary as our Waiting and Loading 2004 order allows as follows;
 
An abstract from this order states:
 
"vehicles when used in the service of a local authority in pursuance of statutory powers or duties provided that in all the circumstances it is reasonably necessary in the exercise of such powers or the performance of such duties for the vehicle to wait in the place in which it is waiting"

The response:

Dear Mr XXXXX,

Thank you for your email of 29^th August 2011 requesting information
 about the CCTV enforcement vehicles.

Please accept the Council’s apology for the delay in providing a response.

Your request has been considered and the information requested is below:

How many CCTV enforcement Vehicles does Hackney employ the use of?

o 3 CCTV enforcement vehicles

Which days of the week are the vehicles used?

o Monday - Sunday

   

What is the address of the base from which the vehicles work from?

o 43 Andrews Road, London E8 4QL

Does HBC own the vehicles, or are they used on behalf of HBC by a private
company under a contract with HBC?

o Vehicles are owned by the council and it is operated by a private
 company
 

If the vehicles are run by a private company on behalf of HBC via a
 contract, please tell me the name of the private company, and please send
 me a copy of the contract.

o Please see attached document, Parking Enforcement Contract

The Council has exempted information relating to pricing as these details
 are considered to be exempt under Section 43(2) of the Freedom of
 Information Act.

Section 43 (2) states that:

information is exempt if its disclosure would, or would be likely to,
 prejudice the commercial interests of any person (including the public
 authority holding it).

In this instance, a tender process for next years’ contract is currently
 taking place. As this is ongoing process which is due to conclude in early
 2012, it is felt that disclosing detailed financial information contained
 within the current contract would be likely to prejudice the commercial
 interests of the current contract holder, APCOA. Companies who submit
 tenders for this service operate within a highly competitive environment.
 It is therefore felt that the release of the detailed information
 contained within this contract could be detrimental to the company
 involved as there is a chance that the same financial models may be
 submitted as part of the forth coming tender.

Upon review of the nature of the information requested and having
 consulted the organisations concerned, the council contends that Section
 43 of the Act is applicable.

The Council has conducted a public interest test and concluded that
 disclosure of these items would not serve to benefit the public as a
 whole.

The council has considered the arguments in favour of releasing this
 information such as:

o The duty to promote transparency, accountability and public
 participation in local government affairs and decision-making.
 o The Council also recognises that disclosure of the council’s
 contractual documentation could enhance the quality of decision-making
 processes adopted by Hackney.

The Council has also considered the arguments against disclosing this
 information such as:

o The age of the information requested.
 o The likelihood and severity of any harm or prejudice that disclosure
 could cause.
 o The significance or sensitivity of the information.

 

The information that has been requested is current and the information
 supplied by the company involved, such as proposed pricing indexes and
 methodology, is commercially sensitive at this time. This is the case as
 there is an ongoing tender process taking place. Therefore, the council is
 of the opinion that disclosure is likely to have a detrimental impact upon
 the company involved.

 

In this instance, the Council contends that the arguments in support of
 the decision to withhold this information weigh in favour of the arguments
 in favour of disclosure.

 

The signatures of parties who signed the contract is also exempt by virtue
 of section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 for the purposes
 of section 40(3) (i) which provides for the exemption of third party
 personal information if it would contravene any of the eight Data
 Protection Principles.

 

Section 40(2), of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, provides an
 exemption from disclosure of an individual’s personal information, where
 it would contravene any of the data protection principles. Under these
 circumstances, our view is that disclosure of signatures, to a member of
 the public otherwise than under the FOIA, would breach the first data
 protection principle. 

 

The first data protection principle states that personal data should be
 processed lawfully and fairly.

 

Please note the information is still covered by copyright legislation.
 You are not authorised to re-use this information for commercial or
 research purposes as defined by the Re-Use of Public Sector Information
 Regulations 2005.  If you wish to re-use this information please contact
 the Information Governance Team, 3rd Floor, Maurice Bishop House, Reading
 Lane, London, E8 1HH

 

If you are dissatisfied with this response and wish to appeal, please
 write to the Information Governance Team, Appeals, at the address above
 and your complaint will be dealt with through our Internal Review
 procedure.

 

If you are still not satisfied following the Internal Review, you have a
 right to appeal to the Information Commissioner. He can be contacted at:

Here's the contract.

I had to split it into seperate files as it was too big to upload as a single file.
