Freedom of Information & Environmental Information Regulation Requests

 Coronavirus (COVID-19) Advice and Guidance

Rutland County Council is presently focussing all of its resources on priority services, dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and supporting our residents and businesses. 

We are currently unable to process Freedom of Information Requests within the timescales required. We would appreciate your patience during the present situation and we will do what we can to ensure that you receive a response but cannot commit to when that will be. At a point when resources can be allocated to this we will let you know and update you on progress in relation to your FOI request

Information Commissioner’s Office Advice:

         ”If you’ve made a Freedom of Information request from a public body or made a subject access request (SAR) for your own information, you should expect delays in response. That’s because organisations are diverting their resources to help with other challenges.
