  • advise if a fee will be charged
  • provide the information requested after any fee has been paid unless an exemption applies

Fees

In answering Freedom of Information requests, the Council is allowed to charge disbursement costs such as printing, photocopying and postage. If the costs involved in locating and/or compiling the information are substantial, the Council can refuse the request on the grounds of cost or charge the applicant a fee of £15 per hour plus disbursements.
