Freedom of Information (FOI)


The Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides public access to information held by public authorities.

It does this in two ways:

  • public authorities are obliged to publish certain information about their activities; and
  • members of the public are entitled to request information from public authorities.

The Act covers any recorded information that is held by a public authority in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Recorded information includes printed documents, computer files, letters, emails, photographs, and sound or video recordings.

Should you wish to make a FOI request of the Parish Council please use the contact form.
