Using the Freedom of Information Act

Many tenants and residents are increasingly using the Freedom of Information Act and the Data Protection Act to gather vital evidence about what local authorities and other public bodies are up to.

Here is a great new website that helps you to find out 'inside information' about what the UK government is doing. You choose the public authority that you would like information from, then write a brief note describing what you want to know. The website then sends your request to the public authority. Any response they make is automatically published on the website for you and anyone else to find and read.
