The Freedom of Information Act requires every public authority to have a publication scheme, approved by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). The ICO is the UK's independent body set up to uphold information rights.
The scheme sets out our commitment to make certain classes of information routinely available, such as policies and procedures, minutes of meetings, annual reports and financial information. The information we release in accordance with the publication scheme represents the minimum we must disclose.
If you would like information not listed in the scheme, you can request it by submitting a freedom of information request.
Organisational information, locations and contacts, constitutional and legal governance.
Financial information relating to projected and actual income and expenditure, tendering, procurement and contracts.
Strategy and performance information, plans, assessments, inspections and reviews.
Policy proposals and decisions. Decision making processes, internal criteria and procedures, consultations.
Current written protocols for delivering our functions and responsibilities.
Information held in registers required by law and other lists and registers relating to the functions of the authority.
Advice and guidance, booklets and leaflets, transactions and media releases. A description of the services offered.
We also publish information that is specifically required by the Local Government Transparency Code 2015.
