Freedom of Information and the Coronavirus Covid-19  

During the height of the pandemic and lockdown period a number of our
staff were redeployed into Covid-19 response teams. This included our
Freedom of Information team and those who provide the responses from the
service areas. This has resulted in a backlog of requests, however we are
now working to recover this backlog and get up to date. 

 

We are still processing requests and sending responses as soon as we are
able, and hopefully within the prescribed deadlines though we can’t
guarantee that at the moment. 

Online Form:If you are sending a new freedom of information request, next
time try using our [1]online form which automates the processing of your
request and if you register, you will receive updates about your request
via email.

 

Help yourself

To some of the more common freedom of information requests we receive we
publish the information on the website.

·               Public Health Burials – we publish this information on
the [2]cemeteries and burials page.

Alternatively, it may be worth checking previous Freedom of Information
requests submitted via [3]What Do They Know

data for the purposes of processing your request and this will be held in
our My Monmouthshire customer information system, please see our privacy

Rhyddid Gwybodaeth a Coronafeirws Covid-19

Diolch i chi am eich cais Rhyddid Gwasanaeth. Yn ystod brig y pandemig a’r
cyfnod clo cafodd nifer o’n staff eu hadleoli i weithio i dimau ymateb
Covid-19. Roedd hyn yn cynnwys ein tîm Rhyddid Gwybodaeth a’r rhai sy’n
darparu ymatebion o’r meysydd gwasanaeth. Mae hyn wedi arwain at
ôl-groniad o geisiadau, fodd bynnag rydym yn awr yn gweithio i leihau’r
ôl-groniad a dychwelyd i’r arfer.  

 

 

Rydym yn dal i brosesu ceisiadau ac anfon ymatebion cyn gynted ag sydd
modd, a gobeithio o fewn yr amserlenni a nodwyd er na allwn warantu hynny
ar hyn o bryd. 

Ffurflen Ar-lein:

Os ydych yn anfon cais newydd rhyddid gwybodaeth, y tro nesaf rhowch
gynnig ar ddefnyddio ein [6]ffurflen ar-lein sy’n awtomatig yn prosesu
eich cais ac os cofrestrwch byddwch yn derbyn diweddariadau am eich cais
drwy e-bost.

 

Cael mwy o wybodaeth:

Rydym yn cyhoeddi gwybodaeth ar ein gwefan ar rai o’r ceisiadau rhyddid
gwybodaeth mwyaf cyffredin a gawn

·         Claddedigaethau Iechyd Cyhoeddus – cyhoeddwn yr wybodaeth hon ar
y [7]dudalen mynwentydd a chladdedigaethau.

Gall hefyd fod yn werth gwirio ceisiadau Rhyddid Gwybodaeth blaenorol a
gyflwynwyd drwy’r wefan [8]What Do They Know

 

Pan fyddwch yn cyflwyno eich cais Rhyddid Gwybodaeth, byddwn yn cofnodi
eich data ar gyfer dibenion prosesu eich cais. Caiff hyn ei gadw yn ein
system gwybodaeth cwsmeriaid Fy Sir Fynwy. Gweler ein [9]Polisi
Preifatrwydd a [10]pholisi Canolfan Gyswllt.

Thank you for reporting your Freedom of Information. We have
received your request.

Freedom of Information and the Coronavirus Covid-19

During the pandemic we know that we won’t be able to respond to
requests in the normal way and will need to prioritise other
services and adapt our usual approach during this extraordinary
period. Whilst Monmouthshire will try to get a response out, you
will understand that existing or future requests may be much slower
than usual or not at all.
   
We have contacted the ICO who have stated that they understand that
resources, whether they are financial or people, might be diverted
away from usual compliance or information governance work. They
won’t penalise organisations that they know need to re-organise
workloads.

you will need to re-register to continue to receive these services. If
you have paid for and receive garden waste collections, this will remove
any contract information we hold against the address therefore the

anonymously; however, we will be unable to feedback any updates on
