The Freedom of Information Act gives you the right to request information held by us.
Please be aware that given the changing nature of the situation with coronavirus and the council's need to prioritise its services, there may be a delay in our response time which will exceed the 20 day deadline for FOI requests.
Before you make a request, please check to see if the information is already available in one of the following places:
- Open data
- Information request disclosure logs:
- Public registers such as planning applications or licensing registers
- FOI publication scheme which shows what information we routinely make available. You can request information referred to in the scheme at any time, without a freedom of information request.
We ask that you do not make requests via post at this time, if possible.
The Information Commissioner's Office oversees freedom of information regulations. Visit their website to find out more about the Freedom of Information Act and for advice about making requests.
