Freedom of information (FOI) requests

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) allow members of the public to request information from public authorities so they have a better insight into the work we carry out on their behalf. 

We receive around 550 information requests per year, but most of the information is sent to just one requester. The disclosure log is a place where we can make requests available to a wider audience.

The log is a summary of each of the requests that are issues of public importance or would have a lasting value to local people.

The cases are organised by the month the cases are closed and show the request for information.

We have a duty to protect the personal information of the people that contact us. Therefore, in some circumstances we've removed information that might identify who has submitted a request.

The disclosure log starts from December 2019 below. If you would like a copy of any information requested before December 2019, please email:

Your request and questions
