Freedom of Information Act Publication Scheme
One of the requirements of the Act is for each Public Authority to adopt and maintain a ‘Publication Scheme’. This scheme sets out:
- Classes of information published by LCC
- How the information can be obtained
- Any charge made for the information
Classes of information
Requesting Information listed in Publication Scheme
Information available on website –links are provided where information is availabe
Information available by post – a request can be made in writing to: County Hall Service Point, County Hall, Glenfield, Leicester, LE3 8SS
We aim to provide information listed in the Publication Scheme within 5 working days.
Printed formats available at specified locations – available on visit to those locations.
The County Council makes a wide range of pre-printed information available at no cost. More substantial printed publications such as Structure Plan documents are charged for, these are clearly indicated in the Publication Scheme. Where information is printed off or copied to meet an enquiry the County Council reserves the right to make a reasonable copying charge. This is most likely to occur where the document size exceeds 10 pages or where multiple copies are requested.
We have published the scheme because it is a requirement of section 19 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The purpose of the Act is to promote greater openness by public authorities (i.e.government and other public sector organisations). It is important therefore that the scheme meets your needs.
We welcome suggestions for additional classes of information that could be included. Any questions, comments or complaints about this scheme should be sent in writing to the Business Partner (Information Management ), County Hall, Glenfield, Leicestershire, LE3 8TG or firstname.lastname@example.org
