The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on public authorities.
The Parish Council has adopted the 2009 Model Publication Scheme issued by the Information Commissioner's Office. This endorses our commitment to routinely publish and make available a broad amount of information about the council as part of our normal business activities. Click here to view the Model Publication Scheme in PDF format.
We aim to ensure that a significant amount of information is available without the need for a specific request, and therefore minimise inconvenience and cost to the public. Most of the information is available here on our website. In addition, where possible or practicable we make information available on the parish notice boards located at the car park in Station Road and near the church at Salehurst and in our quarterly parish Newsletter.
The council has produced a table showing the information that is available, how it can be obtained and whether there is a charge. The guide includes a schedule of charges where applicable.
