Publication Scheme under the Freedom of Information Act 2000


The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on public authorities.

The Parish Council has adopted the 2009 Model publication Scheme issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office. This endorses our commitment to routinely publish and make available information about the Council as part of our normal business activities.

The Council has produced a Guide to information held and published by the Council which can be either be viewed below or is available in hard copy format from the Parish clerk. The Guide includes details of charges which may be raised to cover the cost of supplying copies of information where requested.

Any queries or requests for copies of the Guide for Information should be addressed to:-


The Parish Clerk
