Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information Act (the Act) gives
you the right to access any recorded information which is held by a
public authority. This Trust has two obligations under the
- Produce and maintain a publication scheme, setting out what
information will be made routinely available, where it can be found
and whether a charge will be made for it.
- Respond to individual requests for information which are not
included in the publication scheme.
A model publication scheme has been developed by the Information
Commissioner's Office - the authority which oversees the Freedom of
Information Act. we have adopted the Information
Commissioner's Office model scheme.
We have a user friendly guide to the
information which is in our scheme. This guide lists the categories
of information we routinely publish and allows you access to any
document which is listed.
Any documents which are listed in our scheme but are not
included in our website content will be provided within five days
of your request to the relevant department. Full details appear in
our guide to information.
Some elements of our scheme are 'under review and are being
updated'. If this is stated for any document which you are looking
for, please contact us at the details given below and we will
provide you with as much information as possible.
If there is any charge to be made for the information, this will
be stated in our guide. If you can not find what you are
looking for in our publication scheme, you may find the search
engine (on the top left of every page) helpful.
If you still can't find the information you need, you can make a
request for information.
Requests for information
You can make a request for information in a
variety of ways:

There will be no charge for the response to your Freedom of
Information request, unless we estimate that it would take us 18
hours or more to do the following:
- Determine whether the information is held
- Extract the information from any documents containing it
Any responses which we estimate would take this amount of time
will either be refused or a charge will be made in line with the
Freedom of Information Act before the response is provided.
We will let you know as soon as possible if this is the
full Freedom of Information policy and proecdure on complaints
