As well as responding to requests for information, we must publish information proactively. Here you can find all the information we’re required to publish under our publication scheme.
The scheme sets out our commitment to make certain classes of information routinely available, such as policies and procedures, minutes of meetings, annual reports and financial information.
At present, all the information we proactively release is available free of charge on this website. If, in the future, we make information available but do not publish it on our website, we will update this publication scheme to explain how you can access it and explain any charges that may be necessary.
The seven classes of information are broad and cover all the formal types of information we hold:
The scheme is designed to increase transparency. Members of the public should be able to routinely access information that is in the public interest and is safe to disclose. Also, without the publication scheme, members of the public may not know what information we have available.
If you’d like to see information that is not included in the publication scheme, you can make a freedom of information request.
