Freedom of Information

Coronavirus Update

Whilst the Council has now moved to the delivery of essential services only it is still continuing to process Freedom of Information requests. However, as many of our Services are now focused on the district’s response to COVID-19 responses will likely be delayed and not be able to meet the 20 day timeframe at this time.  

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 makes it easier for you to get information about us. This law, which came into force on 1 January 2005, allows anyone to ask for any information we hold.

We already make a significant amount of information available to the public routinely which means you don't have to make a specific request for it.

Details of this information will be listed in our Publication Scheme.

Making a request

Submit your request in writing stating clearly the information you require.

Write to us at:

Don't forget to provide your contact details so we can reply to your request.

Responding to requests

  • Once we receive your request, we must reply, in writing, within 20 working days
  • In our reply, we must confirm whether or not we hold the information, and either provide you with the information requested or explain why it is not being provided
  • We may charge a fee before supplying the information you request. If so, we'll write to you giving details of the amount you must pay.
