Access to information

Since January 2005 the Freedom of Information Act requires all public authorities, including Councils, to be open with information.

The Act gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by the Council.  It sets out exemptions from that right and places various obligations upon the Council including adopting and maintaining a Publication Scheme.  Any person who makes a request to the Council for information must be informed whether the Council holds that information and, subject to exemptions, be supplied with that information.
