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 you access rights to environmental information held by the Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire, subject to certain exceptions.

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

  • 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.
