Freedom of information

The Freedom of Information Act and The Crown Estate

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 establishes a general right of access to information held by public authorities, subject to certain exemptions e.g. to protect personal or commercial sensitivity.

As part of our responsibilities under the Act, we have produced a publication scheme on our corporate website outlining the classes of information we publish or intend to publish. Please follow this publication scheme link.

The scheme lists classes of information and the information available within each class. Our publication scheme was recently reviewed and refreshed and new material will be added regularly, so please call again soon to discover new published information.

Information will not necessarily be available through the scheme indefinitely - for example, policies and similar documents will be removed when they are no longer current.

If you have any queries regarding our publication scheme, or if you wish to make a Freedom of Information request, please contact:

The Crown Estate, 1 St James's Market, London, SW1Y 4AH
