Why we ask for proof of identification

We ask for proof of identification so that we can make sure that you are entitled to the information you have asked for.

We ask that you provide a copy of:

  • something official with your photograph on (for example, your passport, driving license, work ID badge)
  • something with your address on (for example, a recent bank statement or bill (with the financial information blacked out if you prefer)

If you do not have proof of identification you can still make a request. We might, however, ask you to come into the Town Hall so that we can confirm your identity.
