Section 19 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 requires every public authority to adopt and maintain a Publication Scheme which has been approved by the Information Commissioner, and to publish information in accordance with the scheme. The scheme should specify:
classes of information which the public authority publishes or intends to publish:
the manner in which information is to be publishes, for example online or in hard copy; and
whether there is any charge for the information.
This is Southampton City Council's Publication Scheme under the Act. The idea of the Scheme is to let everyone know what information will be automatically or routinely published and /or made available by the City Council.
Southampton City Council has adopted the model scheme created by the Information Commissioner and has provided this information under seven categories.
All information provided is available upon request via postal services, however there may be a charge for this. If you find the content highlighted in blue, then this is a link to a webpage that contains the information.
