Cost of living support
Colchester Borough Council is providing support for residents facing the cost of living crisis.
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) 2000 gives the public access to information held by public authorities, unless there are good reasons to keep it confidential. It does this in two ways by:
Our aim is to publish as much as possible on our website so that you can access it quickly without having to make a request. You can search our entire website using the box at the top of each page.
Additionally, regularly updated and frequently requested information is published on our Council data pages.
If you can’t find the information you want on our website or on our Council data pages, you can submit a written request to us for the information.
Before you send us a request, check whether we already publish the information you are looking for. Information already accessible by other means is exempt from disclosure under the Act.
The following areas are the responsibility of Essex County Council and requests covering these areas should be directed to essex.gov.uk.
Demographic and population statistics for the whole of Essex can be found at Essex Open Data.
