The Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides people with rights of access to the information held by public authorities and facilitates better public understanding of how authorities carry out their duties, why they make the decisions they do and how they spend public money.
Broadwindsor Group Parish Council has adopted a Publication Scheme which sets out the classes of information which it holds, how the information can be obtained and whether there are any charges for the information. We will respond to your request within twenty working days, if a request is particularly complex and exemptions may need to be considered the Council may need additional time to respond, we will keep you informed if any delays are likely to occur.
Please browse our Publication Scheme and if you would like to make a request, this can be done in writing, by post or email. Upon receipt of the request we will, as soon as possible, acknowledge the request and state what costs, if any, will be involved in the processing of the information.
Further information on Freedom of Information can be found at the Information Commissioner’s Office website.
