You may be able to find the information you are looking for in our publication scheme. We strongly encourage you to check this first before you make a written request for information. Please be aware that we can refuse a written Freedom of Information Act request if the information is readily available via our publication scheme.
A publication scheme fosters openness in government and increases transparency of what we do, what we spend, our priorities, decisions and policies. It is also designed to improve public access to the information we hold and also makes it easier for you to find and obtain the information you need without making a written request.
The Freedom of Information Act requires all public bodies to regularly produce and maintain a publication scheme. We review our publication scheme frequently to ensure it meets our aims and obligations. Most of the information can be accessed free of charge, however in some cases you may be charged a fee.
