Data protection and freedom of information

Image of paper formIn order to provide members of the public with a service, Allerdale Borough Council very often needs to obtain personal information about its citizens. We must be careful how we handle such data as the Council has a legal obligation to treat this information in a specific way.

Allerdale Borough Council also welcomes the coming into force of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FoIA). The Act’s promotes a culture of openness and accountability, which will hopefully lead to a better public understanding of how the Council carries out its duties, the reasons for the decisions it makes and how it spends public money.
