Publication scheme

What is a publication scheme?

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI Act) requires public authorities to adopt and maintain a publication scheme, the purpose of which is to:

  • Specify the classes of information we have committed to publish;
  • Say how we will make that information available;
  • Say whether the information is available free of charge or on payment.

Most of the information covered by our publication scheme will be made available on this website. If you need information in an alternative format, we will do all we reasonably can to help.

Our publication scheme follows the Information Commissioner’s model publication scheme for public authorities.
