Coronavirus - Freedom of information or Data protection requests

If you are making a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to Surrey County Council or a Data Protection request (SAR) for your own information, you may experience delays in your response. As a key public sector body with very specific responsibilities for Emergency Planning, Social Care and vital services we are diverting our resources to help with challenges associated with the current public health emergency.

Notice about contacting us via post

FOI and Data Protection Requests - applicants are advised that due to staff working from home paper applications will be subject to time delays so you are being encouraged to apply online.

In light of the Information Commissioner's guidance to Local Authorities, this notice was reviewed on 22 March 2021.

Next review date: 30 September 2021
