This email is for any FOI queries/requests (for recorded information). For any other types of queries/requests, please use the relevant contact form(s) above.

Where at all possible, please email your enquiry rather than sending correspondence by post. This is because most staff are working from home unless absolutely necessary, and access to posted FOI requests is intermittent; this may cause delay to your enquiry being answered in time. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.
