Environmental Information Regulations

The Environmental Information Regulations are legally enforceable regulations that govern the public's right to access environmental information held by public authorities, including local authorities.

Environmental information covered by the regulations includes the state of the air, atmosphere, water, soil, land and landscape, as well as factors affecting the above elements such as substances, energy, noise, radiation or waste, emissions and discharges into the environment.

The Council's Freedom of Information Policy includes our approach to the release of environmental information.
