Under the Freedom of Information Act it is the duty of every public authority to adopt and maintain a publication scheme. Publication schemes are designed to facilitate the proactive release of information and play a role in supporting and providing greater openness and transparency across the public sector. Winnersh Parish Council has adopted the Model Publication Scheme approved by the Information Commissioner in 2008.
The publication scheme requires the Council to:
- specify the information which is held and falls within the scheme
- publish the methods by which the specific information is made routinely available
- produce a schedule of any fees charged for access to information
These requirements are covered by the Publication Guide included in the WPC Publication Scheme policy document which also includes a copy of the publication scheme.
Other information may be available on request.
