Speed monitoring figures gathered in Crocketford on A75: EIR release
FOI reference: FOI/18/02412  
Date received: 10 September 2018  
Date responded: 2 October 2018
 
Information requested
 

Any speed monitoring figures that were gathered in the village of Crocketford on the A75 between January 2016 and July 2018.

Response
 

As the information you have requested is ‘environmental information’ for the purposes of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs), we are required to deal with your request under those Regulations.  We are applying the exemption at section 39(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), so that we do not also have to deal with your request under FOISA. 

This exemption is subject to the ‘public interest test’. Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption. We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemption, because there is no public interest in dealing with the same request under two different regimes. This is essentially a technical point and has no material effect on the outcome of your request.

In response to your request, please refer to Annex A which is the A75 Crocketford Speed Results which took place on 24 November 2016.
