Freedom of Information Request charges:
Can a fee be charged for responding to a Freedom of Information request?
Sections 9 and 13 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 allow public authorities to charge for answering requests in certain cases.
The Act provides for public authorities to either charge for or decline requests for information that would cost a public authority more than £450 for public authorities (other than Central Government which is over £600) to deal with the request.
This is referred to as the appropriate limit. Public authorities are required to estimate whether a request is likely to breach the 'appropriate limit'.

You have legal rights (within the General Data Protection Regulations) regarding your personal information, including your right of access to see what data we hold and your right to update your information, i.e., to rectify, erase, restrict processing, right to data protability and a right to object.
