Freedom of Information requests in last five years

Alex Chamberlain made this Freedom of Information request to Swansea Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Swansea Council,

Under the Freedom of Information Act of 2000 I would like to know the following:
1. How many Freedom of Information requests were made of Swansea Council in the most recent five calendar years on record (figures for each year required)?
2. Where do these requests come from? (e.g. how many are from newspapers, freelance journalists, businesses etc.)
3. How much did the Freedom of Information requests cost in each of the above years- is there a published report I could be sent a link to?

Yours faithfully,

Alex Chamberlain
