How to Make a Request for Information

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 gives you the right to request information from public authorities, such as Daventry District Council. 

If you would like to make a request for information that is not available from the Guide to Information or Disclosure Log, then please put your request in writing to: 

Freedom of Information 

Daventry District Council 

Lodge Road 


NN11 4FP   



Your request will be answered within 20 working days, however in some cases an extension may be required if the information requested is complex.

When making a request please try to be specific, the more information provided the easier it is for the Council to provide an accurate and quick response.


Guide to Information

This guide lists information that is made available and published as a matter of course, together with details of how you can gain access to it.  Please click on the following link to view the Council's Guide to Information.  This guide complements the Information Commissioner's Model Publication Scheme.


Disclosure Log

Transparency Data 

The Council publishes monthly expenditure information as part of Central Government's Transparency Agenda.  The items published include expenditure over £500, senior staff salary information and members allowances.  Please click on the following link to view the transparency information.


Unavailability of information

Sometimes it is not appropriate to release certain information.  This will be because the Council will be relying on an exemption under the FOI Act.

The Council has a duty to notify you which exemption has been applied and why.  The Council will endeavour to do this as soon as a decision is made.
