Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) you have a general right of access to all types of 'recorded information held by public authorities.

When you ask for information under FOIA we have to:

  • Confirm or deny that we hold the information requested.
  • Acknowledge your request within five working days.
  • Give you the information you have asked for within 20 working days of receiving your request.
  • Provide you with a 'reasonable' level of assistance to gain access to our information.
  • Inform you of the exemption that applies if we are not releasing the information you want.
  • Advise you how to appeal if you are not satisfied with our response.

Please note, that in rare cases, where we calculate that it will cost more than £450 to collate and provide the information you have requested we may decline to provide the information.  In such cases we work out the costs and issue a Fee Notice to you.  If you pay the fee within 3 months we will then provide the information.

How to make an information request under FOI

  • Be in writing (fax or e-mail are acceptable).  We cannot take FOI requests by phone.
  • Contain a contact name and address - we may need to contact you to clarify the request. A telephone number would also be useful and we will need somewhere to send the information.
  • Contain a description of the information required.
