Environmental information regulations 2005

Environmental information is exempt information under Section 39 of the Freedom of Information Act and is dealt with under the Environmental Information Regulations 2005.

Unlike the Freedom of Information, there is no "appropriate limit" in the Regulations and there is no requirement under regulation 12(4)(b) to answer a request that is "manifestly unreasonable". This would apply to requests which would have an unreasonable resource impact on the Trust.

The Trust cannot make a charge for allowing an applicant:

  • access to any public registers or lists of environmental information; or
  • to examine the information (at a place chosen by the public authority)

For all other situations charging is at the discretion of the public authority.
