How do I make an FOI request?

Can you refuse my FOI request?

If we decide to withhold some or all of the information you have asked for, we will let you know the reasons why. We will also explain what to do if you have a complaint about how your request was handled.

In certain circumstances, the Council is not obliged to release information, and these are called exemptions. Further information about this is contained within our Freedom of Information Policy, Paragraph 2.14 .

Where can I find data on Public Health Act Funerals?
