  • The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Form guidance

  1. The Freedom of Information Act gives you a right to see information we hold about lots of different things. The Environment Information Regulations give you a right to see information held by the council about the environment. More information on the Freedom of Information Act and Environmental Information Regulations.
  2. You may ask for information by filling in this form or by writing to Corporate Support at our Riverside House address, or by emailing information@warwickdc.gov.uk.
  3. You must ask for information under the Freedom of Information Act in writing, but you do not have to use this form. You can ask for Environmental Information verbally but it helps us understand what you are asking for if you ask us in writing. You can also ask for information we hold about you under the General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act 2018 using this form. You can find out more about these rights in our privacy notice.
  4. You should say clearly on the form what information you are asking for. You do not have to say why you want the information. We have to give you help in making your request if you need it.
  5. Unless what you ask for is already available to you elsewhere, or not allowed to be given to you for other reasons, we must give you the information under FOI and EIR within 20 working days of getting your request. When you ask for personal data under GDPR and DPA, we will usually respond in one month.
