Our aims
The Council is committed to the proactive dissemination of information, to be open and transparent and will publish information unless restricted by legislation. Like all other public sector organisations the Council is required to make the information it holds available unless subject to an exemption. We put as much information as we can onto the pages of our website.

Publication scheme
Our FOI Publication Scheme is based on the model scheme developed by the Information Commissioners Office and outlines the classes of information that we commit to publish under the Freedom of Information Act. It also gives guidance on charging, and how to request access to records that we do not make directly available.
