Information requested

  • All costs involved in the installation of attitude lights in Springholm, including all consultation, external contracting, and remedial and repair costs.

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.

I have numbered our response for ease of reference;

Please refer to Annex A which includes all costs involved in the installation of attitude lights in Springholm and all costs attributed to all traffic monitoring and traffic calming methods in Springholm. This also includes future estimated costs.
