Freedom of Information Requests

If you would like to request information from the Department of Planning, we kindly suggest that you initially browse our website thoroughly and check the disclosure log to see if the information that you seek has already been published.

If you wish to make a request for information then you should contact the Information Manager or make a request online at the FOI unit website.

Requests must be in writing (letter, email or facsimile) and must include your name and an address (either postal or e-mail). Please be as specific as possible about the information you would like, as this will help us to respond promptly. Where possible, please include a contact telephone number so we can call to discuss your request if necessary.

We will respond to your request promptly. The Law requires public authorities to respond within 30 calendar days, allowing an extension of an additional 30 calendar days if needed. We will always acknowledge receipt of FOI requests made to the Information Manager and we will let you know if we need to extend the deadline.
