Make a freedom of information request

Any information held by the council can be given to anyone who requests it under the 'freedom of information' (FOI) Act, 2000, unless an exemption applies.

To help you receive the correct information we need to:

  • record your request
  • locate the information
  • contact you

Make your using our online FOI request form or by emailing foi@york.gov.uk. Alternatively you can browse the FOI responses we've already published or write to our Customer Feedback Team.

More information about FOI is available on the Department for Constitutional Affairs website.

About the freedom of information act

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 is intended to promote a culture of openness and accountability by giving people the right to access information held by public authorities. It helps to improve public understanding of how we carry out our duties, why we make the decisions we do and how we spend public money.
