The Freedom of Information Act 2000 requires that authorities have an approved publication scheme as a means of providing access to information they publish. The Information Commissioner's Office has developed a model publication scheme, which we have adopted here.

Our publication scheme was recently reviewed and refreshed and new material will be added regularly, so please call again soon to discover new published information.
