  2. You may make a request 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. Whilst this form is designed to assist you and the Council, you do not have to use it to make a request for information.  However requests for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 must be in writing. Requests for Environmental Information can be made verbally but it would help the Council to deal accurately with the request if they were made or confirmed in writing. Requests under the General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act 2018 may also be made using this form.  This includes exercising your right to access your personal information, right to erasure, right to rectification, right to restrict processing, right to object, right to data portability and rights in relation to decision making.
  4. You should state clearly on the form what information you require. You do not have to state under what legislation you are making your request and why you require the information. The council has a legal duty to give you advice and assistance in making your request if you need it.
  5. Unless the information you request is already published elsewhere, or exempt from disclosure for other reasons, the council is obliged to provide you with it under FOI and EIR within 20 working days of receiving your request. For requests under GDPR and DPA, your request will be answered within one month.
