Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act (the Act) and the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) is intended to create openness within all public authorities and Government by giving individuals more access to information. The Act provides a general right of access to non personal information held by public authorities, although there are a few exemptions. The exemptions allow public authorities to legitimately withhold information under certain circumstances.

The Act also requires public authorities to produce a publication scheme, which details the types of information held by the authority.  Teignbridge's publication scheme can be accessed here: publication scheme.

For further information and guidance on the Freedom of Information Act 2000 contact the FOI Officer or the Information Commissioner.  Or to make a request simply email foi@teignbridge.gov.uk
