Freedom of information (FOI)

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, anyone can request information from the Council.

A lot of information is provided on our website already. If you can’t find the information you are looking for, you can make a Freedom of Information request by emailing us using the details at the bottom of this page.

You will need to provide full name and return address. You do not need to say why you would like the information. We aim to reply within 20 working days.

In some cases, the information may not be provided due to legal reasons. This will be explained in the council’s response. Most of the time, the information will be provided free of charge but occasionally, a fee may be payable to cover costs of your request.

Any requests relating to personal information will be processed under the Data Protection Act.

For further information you can read our Data Protection policies which explain the how we hold, process and use personal data.
