The Publication Scheme is a guide to information which we make available on a regular basis under the Freedom of Information Act.
If you want information about a particular subject, this website offers three ways of finding it
- The search box at the top of the page is a powerful search tool which will look for a key word or phrase among our web pages and documents
- The A-Z of Council Services is an alphabetical index which provides links to relevant information about our services
- The Publication Scheme, following guidelines laid down by the Information Commissioner, is a framework for access not only to information already available on the website, but also to certain other categories of information which the council makes available on request.
If you cannot find any reference to the information you need, please let us know, as it may be available in some other way.
You may ask for information by making an official request under the Freedom of Information Act.
