Publication scheme for Shropshire Council

All public authorities covered by the Freedom of Information Act must adopt a publication scheme approved by the ICO. The scheme lists the classes of information that we routinely make available.

What is a publication scheme?

A publication scheme is a description of the kinds of information that a public authority should make routinely available and the ways it makes information available.

Public authorities must adopt a publication scheme approved by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). To make sure that there is consistency in the release of information, the ICO has developed a model publication scheme that any public authority can use. The publication scheme commits an authority to make information available as part of its normal business activities.

We have adopted the model scheme. This is our legal commitment to routinely make available the kinds of information which the ICO requires us to.

We are making the majority of information available free and through our website.  Where we are unable to do so we have provided contact details that people can use to access the information, for example who to contact to arrange for information to be sent out to you or where to come and view the information.

Requesting information from the publication scheme

If you cannot find the information that you think should be made routinely available on the website, or details of how you can obtain the information, please contact us and explain what information you are seeking. The contact details are the same as for making Freedom of Information requests.
