Dear Martin

 

Freedom of Information Request COR/FOI/01445

 

I refer to your request received by the City of Melbourne (“Council”) on 1
September 2022 in which you seek access under the Freedom of Information
Act 1982 (Vic) (“Act”) to:

 

…between May 16th and May 21st, 2022, Citywide on behalf of City of
Melbourne carried out some roadworks on Queen Street East side between
Flinders Lane and Collins Street.

 

In relation to these works, could you please provide the following:

 

a) All the documentation/instructions that Melbourne City Council provided
to the Contractor/Supplier in relation to how the parking signs had to be
temporarily changed and which section of the free "on-street parking areas
for motorcycles" had to be cordoned off ?

 

b) The documentation related to "Citywide’s Reserved Parking permit" which
shows how parking signs should be temporarily changed and correlated
measures.

 

This is to confirm that I have made preliminary enquiries about the
request with the Council’s City Safety, Security and Amenity Branch which
has responsibility for managing parking signage within the municipality
including the issuing of reserved parking permits.

 

In the course of reviewing the request it appears that you are seeking
answers to specific questions about the temporary changes made to the
parking signs along Queen Street which the City Safety, Security and
Amenity Branch believes could be satisfied by a written explanation.

 

Accordingly as an alternative the Director of the Council’s City Safety,
Security and Amenity Branch has prepared a written explanation which the
Council believes will address your queries about the temporary changes
made to the parking signs.

 

If you agree with this approach can you please confirm whether you consent
to me forwarding your contact details to the City Safety, Security and
Amenity Branch who will provide the written explanation to you directly.

 

The request under the Act could be placed on hold until you receive the
written explanation. Based on the written explanation you can then decide
whether you still wish to proceed with the request under the Act.

 

Can you please let me know how you wish to proceed in light of the above.

 

Yours sincerely
