Freedom of Information & Environmental Information Regulations

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000 and Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR) gives you the right to access non-confidential information held by the Council.  The information can be in ‘held’ in various forms which includes printouts, computerised records, maps, plans, microfilm, audio-visual material and paper records.

Information requests about air, water, land, and the habitats of animals and plants, emissions, radiation, noise and other forms of pollution, policies, plans and laws on the environment will be dealt with under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR).

The Act does not cover requests for ‘personal information’ held about you.  This is covered by the Data Protection Act 2018.
