Freedom of Information

We recognise the unprecedented challenges all are facing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Staff and other resources are being diverted away from their usual work including information rights work.

Due to this there may be delays to responding to FOI requests while staff prioritise other areas or adapt their usual approach. We would ask for people’s patience and understanding during this time. 

Our publication scheme has been produced in line with section 20 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, under which the Information Commissioner has approved a new model publication scheme for use by all public authorities from 1 January 2009.

Please be aware that you do not have to use the Freedom of Information Act to make general enquiries about us. Have a look at the talking to us page for the most appropriate person to speak to.

If you wish to use the Act to request information that is not available here, you can contact us by the below form or post. Please note that all Freedom of Information requests must be made in writing.

This publication scheme is divided into two parts:

  1. Introduction and guide to the scheme
  2. Classes of information
