Freedom of Information Publication Scheme

GUIDE TO INFORMATION AVAILABLE THROUGH THE MODEL PUBLICATION SCHEME 2016

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (the Act) requires Scottish public authorities to produce and maintain a publication scheme. Authorities are under a legal obligation to:

• publish the classes of information that they make routinely available; and
• tell the public how to access the information and what it might cost.

Inverclyde Council has adopted the Model Publication Scheme 2016 produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner.

You can see the scheme on the Commissioner’s website by using the external link on this page or by contacting our Freedom of Information Office on the contact details shown on this page.

The purpose of the Council’s Guide to Information is to:

• allow you to see what information is available (and what is not available) in relation to each class;
• state what charges may be applied;
• explain how you can find the information easily;
• provide contact details for enquiries and to get help with accessing the information; and
• explain how to request information we hold that has not been published.
