Everyone has the right to request information held by any local authority. In most cases you will be sent the requested information within 20 working days. Sometimes information may be exempt from disclosure. There are a number of exemptions set out in the Freedom of Information Act (for example, if the requested information includes personal information).

The following table gives a breakdown of the number of requests received per month, plus the number and percentage of requests processed within the legal time frame according to FOI request 20 working days, EIR requests 20 working days and Subject Access Request 40 calendar days.
