Freedom of Information Act - FOI
One of the aims of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI) is that public authorities should be clear and proactive about the information they will make public.
To do this they must produce a publication scheme, setting out:
- The classes of information which they publish or intend to publish
- The manner in which the information will be published
- Whether the information is available free of charge or on receipt of a payment
Some information which we hold may not be made public, for example information about national security or court records. Likewise some documents may include exempt information, so you will only receive the information, which is not exempt.
- A Guide to Requesting Information Under the Environmental Information Regulations, Freedom of Information and Data Protection Acts
For a full explanation of the rules governing requests of information under any of the above please contact the Information Officer.
