Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives the public a general right of access to many kinds of information held by public authorities. The aim of the Act is to increase openness and accountability in the public sector.

Under the Act, from 1st January 2005 anyone seeking information from the Council will have the:

  • right to be told whether or not the Council holds the information being requested
  • right to have that information provided to them

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council already makes a large amount of information about the Council readily available to members of the public on our website. Please visit the ‘Your Council’ section of our website for a list of information currently available.

Any information held by the Council is potentially eligible for release but certain categories of information may be protected, for example, personal information or commercially sensitive information.

Once we receive your request, we must reply, in writing, within 20 working days.

In our reply, we must confirm whether or not we hold the information, and either provide you with the information requested or explain why it is not being provided.

Disclosure Log

The Council’s Disclosure Log is under Development. It will contain responses to requests for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 which we feel are of wider public interest and/or there have been repeated requests for the same or similar information.

We will assess each response to ensure that information is not disclosed unlawfully e.g. personal information will be redacted (blanked out).
Information held within the disclosure log is only accurate as of the date of each response. A review of the Disclosure Log will be undertaken every six months and outdated responses will be removed. Examples of outdated responses include responses to requests for statistics which have been superseded by a more recent request, and where a particular disclosure is no longer of significant public interest.
