The Model Publication Scheme

The Parish Council first adopted the Model Publication Scheme on the 14 October 2008 (Minute 123/08) and it has been re-adopted each year. Click here to Download ‘Model Publication Scheme’

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:-

  1. write to the Council at the address given in the scheme;
  2. e-mail your request to the address set out in the scheme
  3. request the information from our website www.draycottparishcouncil.org.
  4. telephone 01332 875278.
  5. visit the Parish Rooms, Elvaston Street, Draycott, Derby, DE72 3PY.

We will make paper copies of the publication scheme available at the Parish Rooms.

Charges

We plan to make as much information available as possible without charging for it.

All information on our website is available free of charge. If you do not have Internet access, a print out can be available from the clerk, 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 will 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

Complaints

We would expect the clerk to understand what information you have asked for and to tell you where you can find it, but if the information you receive is not what you need, you should contact the clerk.

The information you asked for is not available? –  the clerk 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 or on our website).

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.
