Environmental information regulations

The Environmental Information Regulations 2004 give the public the right to access to environmental information held by public authorities. The regulations allow you to access information about:    

  • the state of the environment
  • emissions and discharges 
  • measures and activities likely to affect the environment
  • the state of human health

Make an Environmental Information Regulation Request

Before you do, please check the information is not already publicly available by browsing our: 

Environmental Information Regulation requests should be requested just like freedom of information requests.


The councils will always try to provide all the information you have requested; however, there are exceptions from disclosure. 

Further information

More information about the Environmental Information Regulations and exceptions is available from the Information Commissioner's Office website.
