About freedom of information requests

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives the public 'a general right of access' to information held by all public authorities (including district councils, county councils, central government and organisations such as the BBC), subject to certain exemptions.

We are also required to produce a publication scheme, which specifies the types of information we publish or intend to publish, how it will be published, whether we will charge for the information, or whether we will provide it free of charge. For more about Freedom of Informatin view a copy of the act or download our Freedom of information policy and our Freedom of information guidelines.

Since the introduction of the act, we have responded to hundreds of requests, so before submitting your request, why not find out whether we have already published the information you are looking for, or whether we can't supply the information you are looking for:

If you can't find what you are looking for and would still like to make a freedom of information request, please complete our online form.
