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.

Medium Term Financial Strategy
The Council's Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) sets out how the overall financial objectives underpin the Council's Corporate Plan.

These activities are strictly regulated and Full Council must annually approve a strategy for the expected treasury management activity in the forthcoming financial year.
