Requesting informationLast updated: 06 February 2013 09:34
Freedom of Information requests can be made by writing to the Council's Corporate Information Governance Officer at the address below.
Please check our Publication Scheme first as the information you require may already be available. If the information is not available, please contact us by email or post stating your name and address for correspondence and the information you require.
To comply with FoI, Portsmouth City Council must respond to requests within 20 working days (subject to exemptions). Where a fee is required, you will be advised and you must pay before the request is processed. If the fee is not paid within three months, the request will be considered lapsed.
Where requests are repeated or considered an intentional annoyance, the Council will be under no obligation to disclose the information requested.
