What is the publication scheme

The Freedom of Information Act sets out certain classes of information that a local authority should proactively publish. To make these classes of information easier to locate on the council website, we have provided links to the relevant pages below.

If the information you are looking for is not published, you may wish to submit a Freedom of Information request to the council.
