Access to information about the council and its services
The Freedom of Information Act means that you have a right to see, or request a copy of, a wide range of recorded information held by Walsall Council. This right was introduced in January 2005 but covers access to information produced by the council prior to this date.
A lot of council information, as listed in our Publication Scheme, is already available on our website, in information leaflets and other publications. The Freedom of Information Act gives you extra rights by allowing you to see, or have copies of information which might not otherwise be published.
