Freedom of information

Appealing a decision

You can apply for an internal review, which is chaired by an independent panel of senior management not involved in the original decision.

All appeals must be submitted within 20 working days of you receiving your refusal notice.

If you are dissatisfied with the final decision of your Freedom of Information request, you can write to the Information Commissioner to ask for an independent review of your case.

The contact details are as follows:

All correspondence to the Information Commissioner must clearly state your FOI reference and the reasons for your appeal.
