The Freedom of Information Act gives people the right to obtain information held by public authorities - unless there are good reasons to keep it confidential. Burton Latimer Town Council meets the requirements of the Act through a formal publication scheme, and by responding to specific requests for information.

When responding to individual requests, the Council follows set procedures, which include the time allowed for responding to requests (20 working days) and the fees or amount that can be charged (see below).

Please note that the Council is not obliged to deal with requests if the costs of finding the information exceed a set amount, and does not need to comply with vexatious or repeated requests. In addition, certain types of information are exempt from disclosure under the Act.
