About the Transparency and Model Publication Scheme

As a public body spending taxpayers’ money, we strive to be open and accountable in the way we operate. Our website holds lots of information about the council and the services we provide. This section is intended to make it easier to find information that you may are looking for and which we are required to publish.

The Transparency Code 2015

Under the transparency Code we must publish several defined data sets which are available in the related pages listed on the right. Please click the link to take you to the relevant information.

For more information on the Transparency Code please visit the Gov.uk website.

The Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 places an obligation on the council to adopt and maintain a Publication Scheme. We adopted the Model Publication Scheme, approved by the Information Commissioner’s Office, which represents a commitment by us to make information available to the public.

If you cannot find the information you want in our Publication Scheme or on our website, for example in our transparency code information, please contact us for details of how you can obtain the information. Alternatively, you can submit a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or the Environmental Information Regulations 2004
