Freedom of information


Introduction: What a Publication Scheme is - and why it has been developed

Every public authority subject to the Freedom of Information Act is required to adopt and maintain an approved publication scheme setting out information that will be made routinely available, how and when that information will be made available, and whether or not the information is free of charge.

Our publication scheme consists of information already published and held by us or information which is to be published in the future. All information in our publication scheme is either available for you on our website to download and print off, or is available in traditional document form. Information within the publication scheme will be available either free, or at a charge.

We explain which is free or which will be provided at a charge later in this scheme.

  • Some information may not be made available when:
  • We do not hold the information
  • The information is exempt from disclosure
  • We cannot easily access the information

The senior officer responsible for maintenance of this scheme is Tim Martin – Head of Governance.
