Information Request policy

Model Publication Scheme

As required by the FOIA, the Council had previously adopted a publication scheme as a guide to information it holds which is routinely available.  Any individual who requests it will be informed whether the Council holds the information and, subject to exemptions, be supplied with it. However, the Council has now adopted the Model Publication Scheme following ICO guidance. Information already held will be redesigned to ensure information can be accessed with greater ease and the requirement to request information will become increasingly unnecessary as key information is published publicly.
