Freedom of Information Act 2000
At the Parish Council meeting on the 14 October 2008 (Minute 123/08) the Council RESOLVED; ‘that Draycott Parish Council adopts the Model Publication Scheme – Freedom of Information Act 2000’. – this has been re-adopted each year.
We plan to make much of the information available on our website www.draycottparishcouncil.org. Information will however be available in other formats such as printed copies.
The scheme lists who you need to contact to ask for information and gives their address and phone number and, where available, their email address.
Information listed in the scheme may be obtained by various methods:-
- by writing to the Council at the address given in the scheme;
- by e-mail request to the address set out in the scheme
- by request from our website www.draycottparishcouncil.org.
- by telephoning 01332 875278.
- by visiting the Parish Rooms, Elvaston Street, Draycott, Derby, DE72 3PY.
We will make paper copies of the publication scheme available at the Parish Rooms.
We plan to make as much information available as possible without charging for it.
Free of charge on the website. For those without Internet access, a print out would be available from the named officer who is responsible for the day to day operations. However multiple printouts or complete documents may attract a charge for cost of retrieval, photocopying and postage. We would let you know if a charge was involved at the time you make your request
Free of Charge to view at the Parish Rooms. An appointment may be necessary.
If you need a lot of printed material we may charge you. Any charges made will be calculated using the Fee Regulations determined under the Act.
Where a charge is payable, payment will normally be required before the information can be provided to you
We would normally expect the named officer to understand what information you have asked for and to tell you where you can find it. If the information you receive is not what you need, you should first contact the named officer.
If the information you asked for is not available, the named officer will tell you why.
If you believe that we have not dealt with your request fairly and cannot deal with it satisfactorily on an informal basis, you should follow our complaints procedure (copy available from the Parish Clerk).
If you have followed our complaints procedure and are still not happy with how we have dealt with your request, you may also contact the Information Commissioner to ask him to investigate the matter.
