Publication scheme

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 we have to provide a Publication Scheme, which sets out the information we make available to the public.

We also take a combined performance and risk report to our Audit & Scrutiny Committee on a quarterly basis. All of these can be found in our committee section.
