Requesting information

Access to information

We aim to be open and transparent and are committed to supporting all access to information legislation. 

We publish a lot of information on the decisions we take and the reports and other information that give the background to our decisions.  We publish this information on our website; this reflects our Publication Scheme.  By looking at our guide to council information, you can identify the information which is or will be readily available.  This means that you do not need to request it under the Freedom of Information Act or the Environmental Information  Regulations.

You can request specific information from us (that is not publicly available on our website), under

Freedom of Information Act

Or Environmental Information Regulations

You can also find out more about how we look after your personal data.

Translation Services

We are committed to delivering services to people in a fair and equal way. Effective communication is an essential part of quality services. Where communication barriers exist, such as a need for language translation or information in alternative formats, we aim to provide access tailored to people's needs, to make sure we offer equal access to services and employment opportunities for all.  You can find more information on our translation page

Re-use of public sector information

A further set of regulations covers the re-use of public sector information in a way that was not originally intended.  For more information, see our website notice.
