Access to information

Access to information

In keeping with government legislation, the council makes much of the information it holds publicly available on our website through our publication scheme.

There are also three areas of law that give you the right to access other information held by us:

  • The Data Protection Act allows you to make a request to see personal information we hold about you.
  • The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act allows you to request any other type of information from us.
  • The Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) allow you to request information about things affecting the local environment.
