Before making a request
There is already a lot of information made available publicly. You may find the answer to your question on the government website before you make a request.
We will publish anonymised responses to Freedom of Information requests on our website in a disclosure log. Once information is issued to you in response to your Freedom of Information request, it is then considered to be publicly available.
Information we publish online may be treated as exempt under section 20, information accessible to applicant by other means.
If the information you are requesting is already publicly available, your request may be refused, however, we have a duty to advise and assist you to locate the information you are seeking.
