Publication scheme

Charges for information published under our scheme

The Publication Schemes purpose is to make information available:

  • at the smallest cost to the public
  • at the smallest inconvenience for the public.

Charges made by the Council for published material will be:

  • justified
  • transparent
  • kept to the smallest cost possible

Unless stated otherwise, material accessed on a website is free of charge.

Some information is subject to a charging regime specified by parliament.

There are charges for actual costs incurred such as:

  • photocopying
  • postage and packaging
  • direct costs incurred as a result of viewing information

Other charges can apply if there is a legal authorisation.

If a charge applies, confirmation of payment is due before we provide the information
