Publication scheme

This Publication Scheme is prepared in accordance with the Information Commissioner’s approved standard definition documents.

Information will be provided on the Council’s website:

Or the Council’s Open data site:

Information that is available on the Council’s websites or instructions on the websites that indicate where a requester can easily access the information will be exempt from release undersection 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Where it is impracticable to make information available on the websites, it has not been made available in another way as stated on the Council’s websites or when an individual does not wish to access the information by the website, they should ask the Council to provide them with the information using the procedure detailed on the Council’s website:

In exceptional circumstances some information may be available only by viewing in person (e.g. some planning documents or public registers which are not published online). Where this is the case, contact details will be provided. An appointment to view the information will be arranged within a reasonable timescale.

Charges made by the Council for routinely published material are detailed in the Council’s Information Governance& Risk Policy:  If a charge is to be made, confirmation of the payment due will be given before the information is provided. Payment will be requested prior to provision of the information.

The Council makes datasets available for re-use under the Open Government Licence on its Open Data page and its Freedom of Information disclosure log.
