We are committed to meeting the statutory requirements of the FOI Act. 

Before you make a request

You might not need to make a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to get the information you need.  Please check our previous releases to see if we’ve already answered your question.

What is a Publication Scheme?

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI Act) requires public authorities to adopt and maintain a publication scheme, the purpose of which is to:

  • Specify the classes of information we have committed to publish
  • Say how we will make that information available
  • Say whether the information is available free of charge or on payment

Most of the information covered by our publication scheme will be made available on this website. If you need information in an alternative format, we will do all we reasonably can to help.  You can view our publication scheme here.

Charges for information

Nearly all of our information can be accessed from this website free of charge. In some cases charges may apply.

If you do not have access to the internet, a printed copy of the web page(s) can be sent to you free of charge.

The following may incur a charge:

  • Requests for multiple copies
  • Where the cost of photocopying, postage and packing exceed £50

Any charges made will be to cover the costs of photocopying, postage and packing. You will be told in advance of supplying the information if there will be a charge, and how much it will be.
