Re-use of public sector information policy

Re-use of information that is not a Dataset

WHBC will consider all requests to re-use information that is not a dataset, under the PSI Regulations. We will not always grant permission to re-use but will support and encourage re-use whenever possible.

The PSI Regulations require WHBC to:

  • Publish a list of documents that can generally be re-used. The Council’s Publication Scheme will contain these documents.
  • Publish a clear, fair and transparent procedure for the processing of requests in a timely way for the re-use of information – See section 7.0
  • Publish any standard charges associated with re-use – See section 8.0
  • Operate a complaints process – See the Council’s Freedom of Information and Environmental Information Regulations Complaint policy.
