Richmondshire District Council

Under the terms of The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR) you have the right to ask for information we hold.

Anyone can ask for this information. There are no restrictions on your age, nationality or where you live.

Sometimes, we may refuse your FOI request. This could happen, if, for example, the information is sensitive or the cost is too high.

There's lots more information on this at the Information Commissioner's website

If your request is refused, we'll tell you why and explain your rights of appeal.


The cost

In most cases, you won't be charged for making an FOI request but you may have to pay for photocopying or postage. If there is a charge, you'll be told what it is and you'll have to pay it before the information is released.


Make a request

You can make a request using this form:

We're allowed up to 20 working days to respond to your request.
