Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information Act gives you the right to request information held by all UK public bodies, including Weston-super-Mare Town Council. We are committed to openness and accountability in the services we provide and will provide as much information as we can, using exemptions only where essential. Requests should be made in writing and posted to our offices or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide a clear description of the information you require, your name and contact details.
The Act requires authorities to maintain a Publication Scheme. This is a guide to the information that we publish as a matter of routine. Our Publication Scheme sets out the classes of information that we publish, how it will be published and accessed, what fees there might be, and the procedure for making requests etc. The scheme is intended to ensure that a wide range of information is easily available without the need to make specific requests for information.
For information not held on our Publication Scheme or available through other means, for example, our website, any person may make a request in writing to us asking for information. Subject to legal reasons, we are obliged to state whether we hold that information and if so we are required to provide a copy.
