Freedom of information request

Welcome to our freedom of information request form

This form can be used if you wish to submit one of the following request;

  1. Freedom of information request

The Freedom of Information Act gives you the right to obtain information held by public authorities unless there are good reasons to keep it confidential. This general right of access under the Freedom of Information Act came into force in January 2005.

You have the right to be told whether or not the information requested is held and the right to be given that information within 20 working days.

You also have the right to complain if you do not receive the information required.

Publication Scheme:

We have adopted the Information Commission's Publication Scheme which commits us to making information available to the public as part of our normal business activities. Please firstly check through the Publication Scheme on our Website to find your information. If you can’t find the information you require then please raise a request.

Please note: A new form should be completed and submitted for each separate request.
