Model Publication Scheme 2015 - Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations provide you with legal rights to obtain information from Scottish public authorities such as North Lanarkshire Council and associated bodies such as the Town Centre Activities Limited.

This means that any person who requests information from a Scottish public authority or an Arms Length External Organisation (ALEO) has the right to be given that information, with very limited exceptions, such as personal information, and expect to receive it within 20 working days.

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (the Act) requires that all Scottish Public Authorities produce and maintain a Publication Scheme.  Authorities, including Town Centre Activities Limited, are required to:-

ยท         publish the classes of information that they make routinely available; and

ยท         tell the public how to access the information and what it might cost.

Town Centre Activities Limited has adopted the Model Publication Scheme 2015 produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner.  The Scheme has the Commissioner's approval until 31 May 2019.

If the information you want is not available through the publication scheme, you can ask for any recorded information we hold.

The Company has also produced a Guide to Information which is available as a download.

For more information on this scheme, see other useful websites or downloads.
