We'll make a charge to cover our costs for responding to requests for environmental information. We're currently developing a formal charging scheme. In the meantime our charges will be based on guidance issued by the Information Commissioner. The charges will be made up of:
- Staff time spent locating, retrieving and extracting the information requested will be charged at £25 per hour.
- Printing and copying information requested will be charged at 10 pence per page.
The Regulations only give a right of access to environmental information. If the information requested is to be accessed on order to be reused we may require you to pay a fee and enter into a re-use licence before we provide access to the information. We will advise you of any such fee and of the re-use licence before responding to your request.
