Under the Freedom of Information (FOI) legislation I made a FOI request for all information held by the Highland Council regards raising a Road Traffic Order to prevent
overnight parking in the Dornoch Beach Car Park on 1 September.
On Monday, after over two months of waiting and two days before the Scottish Information Commissioner would have intervened, I received the following from The Highland Council:
“A Road Traffic Order (read Traffic Regulation Order) has not yet been raised for this car park. You will be able to object to the Traffic Order if and when a RTO is raised. A notice will be published in relevant local newspapers giving the public notice of the proposal to make an order and you can lodge an objection at that point.
A draft RTO has not as yet been prepared, so we do not have a copy to forward to you. We also do not have designs prepared for any new signs as yet.”
Make of this what you will!
