Freedom of Information Act 2000
One of the aims of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is that public authorities should be clear and proactive about the information they make available to the public. The Act is intended to encourage organisations to make more information available to the public and to develop a greater culture of transparency and openness.

If you require information about yourself held by Carlisle City Council, this is dealt with under the Data Protection Act 1998.
