Environmental Information Regulations

The Environmental Information regulations [EIR] came into force on 1st January 2005 to coincide with the full implementation of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  EIR gives the public access rights to environmental information held by the Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire, subject to certain exceptions.

Environmental information covers a wide range of information about the state of the natural and built environment.  This includes information about:

  • The state of the elements of the environment including air, water, soil, land, flora and fauna.
  • Factors such as substances, energy, noise, radiation or waste including emissions.
  • Measures including policies, plans and programmes.
  • Reports on the implementation of environmental legislation.
  • The state of human health and safety.

How to make a request

Unlike Freedom of Information requests, requests for environmental information do not have to be in writing but it will help us to clarify your request more quickly if you write to Data Protection, Lincolnshire Police Headquarters, PO Box 999, Lincoln, LN5 7PH or alternatively email FOI@lincs.pnn.police.uk

We aim to respond to your request for information as soon as possible and within 20 working days.  In exceptional cases, and in line with the regulations, we may extend this to 40 working days.  We aim to provide most information free of charge, although in some cases a fee may be charged.
