Publication Scheme


Every Local Authority is required to adopt and maintain a publication scheme under the provisions of the above act. The first model scheme was introduced in 2003. In 2005 the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) reviewed the effectiveness of publication schemes. The outcome was to highlight the need to develop and improve the proactive dissemination of public sector information. During 2007 a new model publication scheme was developed which was consulted upon in January 2008.The new model scheme became operational on 1st January 2009. Click here to view the Publication Scheme
