Freedom of Information

Under the FOI Act you can request almost any information held by Southampton City Council and the Council is obliged to provide a response within 20 working days. The Council will always endeavour to provide as much information as possible about the request. However, certain information is exempt under Freedom of Information Act and therefore will not be divulged.

The information you wish to request may already be published and immediately available to you. So before you log your request, we recommend you check already published FOI responses. The Council now publishes responses to all information requests at the 'Published FOI responses' webpage, which is available on the left hand side menu.

You can also check alternative sources of information immediately available to you, which include the Council's website, Publication Scheme, Libraries etc.

If, however, you cannot find the information you are looking for then you can send your request for information to the address below (via email or via post).
