Like everyone else at this time, we are very conscious of the fact that public authorities are currently focussing on minimising health risks and planning for the maintenance of essential services. We understand that resource implications, including redeployment of staff in some areas e.g. to help with tracing may affect the ability of public authorities to continue to deliver services within the normal timelines. We would ask requesters and appellants to bear this in mind please.
Online appeals can only be made to OCEI by persons who wish to appeal against the decision of a public authority on their requests for access to environmental information.
