Publication scheme

IT maintenance affecting the disclosure log

We are sorry, the disclosure log will be unavailable from 12 noon on 4 June for a period of 2 weeks while we upgrade the system.

Please contact if you need to access FOI requests in the meantime.

It may take us longer than usual to respond to your request at this time. We thank you for your patience and apologise for the inconvenience this will cause.

What is a publication scheme?

Under the Freedom of Information Act, public authorities are required to have a publication scheme.  A publication scheme is a guide which tells people about the broad classes of information that we will routinely make available to the public. It includes information held in any form for example, websites, paper files and public registers.

We have adopted the Information Commissioner's Model Publication Scheme for local authorities. The Information Commissioner is an independent regulator who enforces and advises upon the Freedom of Information Act and Environmental Information Regulations and has produced and approved this scheme.

Where to find our published information

We publish key information in the Transparency section of this website

Responses to previous information requests

We are sorry, the disclosure log where responses to previous freedom of information requests are held is unavailable at the moment due to maintenance.  

You will be able to search the disclosure log when it is available again. We hope to have it back online by 21 June 2021.
