Freedom of Information Act

About the Act


The Freedom of Information Act gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, including the Council. Individuals already have the right of access to information about themselves under, for example, the Data Protection Act 1998. The Freedom of Information Act 2000 extends this right to allow public access to all types of information held.  For further information visit the Information Commissioner web site. 


How to make a request


Before making a request for information, please check the Council’s Publication Scheme (below) to make sure that the information you require is not already available. If the information is already on the Publication Scheme then we will not provide this again under the Freedom of Information Act. Requests for information not available through these means can be made to the Parish Council - Contact Us. You will need to provide a contact name; a contact address, and your request (which MUST be specific). 


We will respond within 20 working days. 





We will usually provide the information requested free of charge. However, where a charge is made you will be notified of the amount payable in writing prior to us providing the information.
