Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your information request.

If you are making a request for information under FOI(S)A we will respond
within the statutory timeframe of 20 working days.

If you are making a request for environmental information under EIRs we
will aim to respond within 20 working days. However for requests of a
complex nature it could take us up to 40 working days. If so we will write
and tell you this within 5 working days of receipt.
If you are making a request for information under DPA we will respond
within the statutory timeframe of 40 calendar days, following receipt of
the necessary fee.

Regards,
