Freedom of Information

The current Freedom of Information legislation was enacted and applied to local authorities, including Mayo County Council, in October 2014. The legislation gives you the following legal rights: 

  • The right to access official records held by Mayo County Council as defined by the Act 
  • The right to have personal information held by Mayo County Council about you corrected or updated where such information is incomplete, incorrect or misleading 
  • The right to be given reasons for decisions taken by Mayo County Council that affect you 

While a Freedom of Information request is free of charge, fees for search, retrieval, and copying may apply.
