FOI and EIR
There is usually no charge for responding to FOI or EIR requests, unless the request exceeds above 18 hours of officer time.
Officer time is estimated at a rate of £25 per person per hour. If we estimate the cost to be more than £450 we will inform you of this and advise you on how to refine the request to reduce the cost to below £450.
If we estimate the cost to be below £450 we may charge for disbursements such as photocopying and postage. We will always advise you of this beforehand.
There is a £10 fee for a general request (This covers our administration costs). Payment can be made on-line via our Pay for it facility.
Alternatively we accept cheques made payable to 'London Borough of Sutton' which should be included with your completed and signed application form.
