Environmental Information Regulations

Environmental information includes recorded information the council has concerning:

  • The state of the elements of the environment such as air, water, soil and land.
  • Emissions and discharges, noise, energy, radiation, waste and any other such substances. 
  • Measures and activities such as policies, plans and agreements affecting or likely to affect the state of the elements of the environment. 
  • Reports, cost benefit and economic analysis used in these policies, plans and agreements. 
  • The state of human health and safety, contamination of food chain and cultural sites and built structures.
