Council publication scheme
Every public authority is required to adopt and maintain a publication scheme setting out the classes of information it holds and the manner in which it intends to publish the information.
The purpose of a scheme is to ensure a significant amount of information is available, without the need for a specific request.
Schemes are intended to encourage organisations to publish more information proactively and to develop a greater culture of openness.
Who we are and what we doOrganisational information, locations and contacts, constitutional and legal governance.
