Freedom of Information request

Submit a request

Before requesting information, please check the following pages to see if the information you're looking for has already been published. 

All Freedom of Information (FOI) requests must be in writing. You can contact us using the details on this page. 

Your request must include:

  • The name of the person requesting the information.
  • An address for correspondence - ideally an email address, which may be useful if we need to clarify your request.
  • A clear description of the information you require. Please provide as much detail as possible, as this will help us to process your request more quickly and efficiently. 

Once we've received your request, we'll send you an acknowledgement with a reference number. 

We have 20 working days from the day we receive your request to provide the information. If we need to ask you for any further information to clarify the request we will "stop the clock" until we have received this. 

Sometimes you may have to pay a fee, either to cover administration costs, or to pay photocopying or postage costs, or because of the expense involved in finding and supplying the information. You'll be told in advance if a fee will apply.
