Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 gives everyone the legal right to see information held by Culture Perth and Kinross (CPK), unless there is a good reason to withhold it.

Making a Freedom of Information request

You can make a request for information under the terms of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 by emailing, or by writing to the FOI team.

You need to tell us your real name, and give us a description of the information you want to see. You don’t need to tell us why you want the information.

We are happy to advise you on how to obtain the information you’re looking for; please feel free to contact us for guidance. You can also look at CPK’s website for details of information which is made available routinely.

Responding to your request

We will acknowledge your request when we receive it, and respond within 20 working days.
If we don’t hold the information you’ve requested, or if we decide to withhold it, we will advise you of this. If you disagree with our response you have the right to ask us to review our decision. If you are still unhappy after a review, you can appeal to the Office of the Scottish Information Commissioner.

Subject Access Requests

Requests for information about yourself, known as Subject Access Requests, are dealt with under the Data Protection Act 1998.
