Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2014 requires FOI bodies to prepare and publish as much information as possible in an open and accessible manner on a routine basis outside of FOI, having regard to the principles of openness, transparency and accountability as set out in the Act. This allows for the publication or giving of records outside of FOI provided that such publication or giving of access is not prohibited by law. The scheme commits FOI bodies to make information available as part of their normal business activities in accordance with this scheme.
The Authority’s FOI Publication Scheme is set out below. Each link leads to a page containing relevant information in the category or links to relevant information on the Authority’s website:
- General Information about the Authority
- Information about the functions of the Authority
- Information on decision making process
- Financial Information
- Information routinely published
If the information you require cannot be found here, you may wish to contact the Authority through the variety of options set out in Contacts.
If the information is not currently made publicly available by the Authority, you may consider making a request under Freedom of Information.
