Freedom Of Information (FOI)

Information on the Freedom of Information Act and how to make a Freedom of Information Request

Freedom of Information LogoThe Freedom of Information Act 2000 states that information on any subject held by any public body should be available to the public regardless of age, nationality, or where they live. The right of access to information given in the Act includes both a right for you to be told if the information exists, and if so a right to receive it, subject to certain exemptions.

Information requested under the Freedom of Information Act is provided for personal use only.  The Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005 allow for applications to be made to re-use information once it has been obtained. 

When the Council receives your request, it must respond as soon as possible and in any event within 20 working days.
