Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 gives legal rights of access to non-personal information held by a public authority on submission of a written request.  When an individual or organisation makes a request, we must confirm or deny whether we have the information. Unless the information requested falls into one of several categories of exempt information, we must supply what has been requested.  If we refuse to provide some or all of the requested information on the grounds that it is exempt, we will explain the reason for doing so.

You can request a copy of the personal data we hold about you by submitting a subject access request to us. This request must be in writing and clearly specify the information you require. View our subject access policy.

Make a request

If you cannot find the information you want on our website, the quick and easy way to make an information request is to use our online form. We aim to respond to requests as soon as possible and within 20 working days as specified by the Act. If you prefer, you can make a request by letter or use our information request form, but using our online form will ensure your request gets through to the area of the council that can best respond to your enquiry as quickly and efficiently as possible.  You can also find guidance about how to make an information request.

If you are dissatisfied with the way we have handled a request you can request a review.
