7 March 20157 April 201512 March 2015I should like to make a Freedom of Information request please for a copy of the current contract between the university and District Enforcement Ltd. I believe the contract previously made available to me has expired or been extended and I would like a copy of whatever documents now cover parking on university land. Electronic versions will be fine.The university�s contract with District Enforcement is rolling on, on its current terms. The contract will be renegotiated during the coming months and should be in place by August.

With regard to an unredacted copy of the contract, the university hasn�t received a court order, no principle has been set, and therefore, there is no duty on the university to provide you with an unredacted copy of the contract.

I have however, attached the redacted copy for your convenience.
5 March 20152 April 201517 March 2015Please provide me with the total tuition fee figure that was agreed with the University and students for the MSc Digital Feature Film Production course (starting 2013/14) following the University's decision to not fund the film made as part of the course out of the fees, due to the minimum requirement of 10 people applying for it not being met. This is the reduced rate of fees agreed, not the ??6750 rate advertisedRequester withdrawn request
12 March 201513 April 20151 April 2015Can the university please explain by what authority the contract is rolling on? Who agreed this and when, and what legal advice was taken before that decision? Condition 2 suggests the contract supplied ended in December with no provision for an extension. I suspect it currently has no legal statusThe contract clause attached to your e-mail is the same as the redacted copy of the contract supplied previously.

The contract is rolling on to allow the University to consider, in line with the campus transformation programme and the sustainable travel plan, what changes if any we should recommend for car park management going forward. A working group has been set up to look at previous feedback as well as future suggestions and is due to meet again after Easter. The University is working on a travel assessment as well as with the City Council on a planning application for additional car parking spaces and therefore the decision has been made by me to delay a decision on car park management enforcement until this work is concluded.

The, MD of the company and Estates Management met on 13th January to review the situation and agreed that the contract would roll on for a further 6 months with no changes to terms and conditions. Copy of a letter confirming this is attached.
