The council works hard to be transparent in its actions and decisions.

This is in part due to the need for compliance with national legislation and guidance, but also because we want to go a step further wherever possible.

Where can I find out more?

Can’t find what you’re looking for?

You can also ask for information in writing under the Freedom of Information Act.  If the council has the information it will try to provide a response, or tell you where you can find the information.  Just contact us with your query.  It has to be in writing either by email or post to be considered.

In cases where it might take a long time, the council can levy a charge.  We will try to avoid this where possible and will inform you in advance if it looks likely. You can find out more about Freedom of Information requests here.
