Basildon Council's Publication Scheme - Information we publish

The Publication Scheme - a catalogue of information currently published and available to the general public.

Please check the publication scheme for the information you are after before making a formal Freedom of Information request

The Freedom of Information Act received Royal Assent in November 2000 and places a duty on local authorities to submit a publication scheme for approval by the Information Commissioner.

The Council's publication scheme has received approval from the Information Commissioner and sets out the classes of information which we currently publish or intend to publish, where it can be obtained from, in what format and whether there is a charge for the information.

The scheme is ever evolving and will be continually updated and amended to maintain its relevance.

Guidance document

  • The Guide to Basildon Council's Publication Scheme is currently being updated. The updated version will be published here as soon as it becomes available. Please accept our apologies for this temporary inconvenience.
