Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the legal instruments that create a right to access information for the benefit of citizens, as they also entail an obligation on the person holding the required information to provide it to the people requesting it. There are a variety of legal instruments in the United kingdom (UK) allowing any person to access environmental information. All these instruments can be used concurrently or individually: the various instruments overlap since they have been enacted independently. Public registers are widely used in a multitude of different areas, ranging from the traditional registers that contain all births, marriages and deaths maintained by the General Register Office for England and Wales to the planning registers, public register maintained by local planning authorities (LPAs) and containing details on planning applications and related planning matters.

Keywords: legal instruments; local planning authorities (LPAs); public registers; United kingdom (UK)
