Freedom of information requests cost Bucks County Council £234,000 to respond to during 2011, it has been revealed.
The council, which is obliged to release details about the way it works and money it spends when asked under the Freedom of Information Act, received 1,463 requests last year.
According to a survey by University College London this is 34% higher than the county council average but was slightly down on the amount Bucks received in 2010.
Members of the public made the most requests (36%), followed by private businesses (22.3%), the media (18.6%), campaign groups (8.2%) and public authorities and elected individuals (5.4%).
The most common request type was for information about schools (17.3%), followed by highways (15.8%).
The council was able to fully answer requests nearly 60% of the time – the most common reason for one not being answered was due to the authority not holding the information needed (14.8%).
The Freedom of Information Act was brought in under the old Labour government but in 2010 Tony Blair said he regretted its introduction.
