Freedom of Information
This section contains the Council's publication scheme along with details on how to contact the Council's freedom of information officer
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, including the Council. It sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on the Council.
The Council has published a Publication Scheme that sets out the classes of information that we publish, how it is published and whether we make a charge or not. The scheme ensures that a significant amount of information is available to you, without the need for a specific request, and describes how Bradford Council works and how to obtain information published by our various departments.
Since January 2005 any person who makes a request to a public authority for information must be informed whether the public authority holds that information and, subject to exemptions, be supplied with that information.
