We are required to have a Publication Scheme by the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and have adopted the standard Publication Scheme published by the Information Commissioner.
The Scheme sets out the kind of information we routinely make available to the public as part of our normal business activities.
The idea is to encourage the proactive publication of information and develop the culture of openness. It points to information we are required by law to make public and has the intention of making information available, easy to find and use, without people having to ask.
A large amount of information is already available on this website, but if you want more information please contact us and if we can supply it, we will.
The Council routinely publishes information as part of our usual business activities. This supports the requirements of a publication scheme as set out in the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the requirements of the Local Government Transparency Code 2015, both of which encourage the proactive publication of information and the development of a culture of openness and transparency, making information accessible, easy to find and use.
A large amount of information is already available on this website, hyperlinks to the relevant pages have been provided below.
If you would like further information which is not listed below, you can request this via a Freedom of Information request.
