Information Request policy


The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 amended certain sections of the FOIA.  The amendment affects the way in which datasets must be made available.  In accordance with the amendment WHBC will ensure:

  • Datasets will be available in a reusable format as far as reasonably practicable.
  • If the dataset copyright is owned by the Council, it will provide the information under licence.
  • Datasets that have been requested will be published as part of the Publication Scheme where reasonably practicable.
