Requests for Information and FOI Publication Scheme

Important Update from the FOI Officer – Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government

Dear FOI Requester,

Extraordinary measures are being taken to support public services under severe pressure at this time and this will affect the Freedom of Information process in the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government.

Many staff in the Department, including those in the FOI Unit, have been or will be redeployed to support our colleagues in critical internal processes, to perform contact tracing for the HSE and to support other public service bodies facing severe pressure at this time.

While it is possible for the Department to avail of exemptions under the FOI Act to turn down requests or apply extensions, given the ongoing uncertainty in the State, I would ask that you understand the difficulties arising and consider your existing request “withdrawn” and then resubmit it at the appropriate time.

Many thanks for your cooperation at this time and apologies for any inconvenience caused.

FOI Officer

Making a Request for Information

Freedom of Information (FOI) and Access to Information on the Environment (AIE)

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and Access to Information on the Environment (AIE) Regulations operate in parallel. While the two legal codes are broadly similar, the FOI code is more detailed and specific in its provisions. 

Fees are not required when making a request for information under either code, although fees may apply during the latter stages of the request.
