Access to information
MODEL PUBLICATION SCHEME
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 received Royal Assent on 30th November 2000. It gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on public authorities. Any person who makes a request to a public authority for information must be informed whether the public authority holds that information and, subject to exemptions, supplied with that information.
Under the Act every public authority is required to adopt and maintain a Publication Scheme. This scheme will provide the public with a structured listing of any information released, with authorities undertaking a commitment to make it available to all. The Scheme must set out how it intends to publish the different classes of information it makes available and whether it intends to charge for providing the information.
We are committed to making information available to the public as part of our normal business activities.
The information available from the Parish Council under the Publication Scheme and details of how to access this information can be downloaded below.
This document was reviewed and approved at the Full Council Meeting on 19th November 2018.
