The Freedom of Information Act (FoIA) gives every citizen the right to request information from public sector organisations, including Government, local authorities, the National Health Service, Schools, the Police and the Fire Service. You can use this and other legislation such as the Environmental Information Regulations and the Data Protection Act to request information from Cheshire West and Chester Council.
The Council already makes a great deal of information available, by publishing it or allowing people to inspect it.
Our Publication Scheme provides a guide to the current information we routinely publish, or intend to publish. It aims to help you understand what information is already available, how to find/access it and whether or not a charge applies.
If you cannot find a reference to the information you want in our publication scheme or by searching our website, you will need to ask us for it.
