About Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act and Environmental Information Regulations give you the right to request recorded information held by Wiltshire council. Recorded information includes printed documents, computer files, letters, emails, photographs and sound or video recordings.

The General Data Protection Regulation  gives you the right to access your personal data; personal data is information about you. For further information about personal information visit Data protection.

Publication Scheme

This is a guide to the information that we publish as a matter of routine. The scheme is intended to make sure that a wide range of information is easily available without the need to make a specific request for information.

Local Government Transparency Code 2015

The Transparency Code was issued to meet the Government's desire to place more power into citizens' hands to increase democratic accountability and make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services.
