Environmental Information Request

The Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 set out enforceable regulations that govern the public’s right to access the environmental information we hold.

The requirements are slightly different to those of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.  One main difference is that from 1 April 2012 information that costs over £100 to provide to the applicant, will be charged for, in accordance to our Schedule of Costs. Please see the publications sections for a link to our Schedule of Costs.

For requests for environmental information please complete the online form below:

Environmental information covered by the regulations includes the state of:

  • the air
  • atmosphere
  • water
  • soil
  • land
  • landscape
  • as well as factors affecting the above elements such as substances, energy, noise, radiation or waste, emissions, discharges into the environment

The above Regulations allow you to request information that the Council holds in relation to environmental information as noted above: however, if you wish to report a query, complaint or fault relating to an environmental issue please see Environmental Health
