You have to use Server.UrlEncode on "black&white" before you add it to the querystring.  This will work.

You're doing a UrlEncode on the string including the "?" and "="s.  You don't want to UrlEncode the entire string, just the values

Example of how to do this properly:

StringBuilder qs = new StringBuilder();
qs.Append("?regionid=");
qs.Append(Server.UrlEncode(regionid));
qs.Append("&clientname=");
qs.Append(Server.UrlEncode(clientname));
qs.Append("&newhrcloan=");
qs.Append(Server.UrlEncode(newhrcloan));
