In order to comply with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, public sector organisations such as ours have to routinely publish information whenever possible, adopting a Publication Scheme which sets out how that information can be accessed.
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is responsible for regulating and enforcing compliance with Freedom of Information laws. The ICO publishes a Model Publication Scheme upon which our own scheme is based.
We have organised the scheme into a series of information classes to make it easier for you to locate what we publish. You can browse the information by clicking on the categories below. A full listing of the information we publish is also available to download, with details of any fees that may apply and the frequency that the information is updated:
A hard copy of the Publication Scheme can also be made available on request. If you require the scheme in another specific format or language, please contact us to discuss.
If you are seeking information which is not covered by our Publication Scheme, please visit our Freedom of Information pages to find out how you can request the information. If you are looking for information we may hold about you, please visit our Data Protection page.
