What is a Publication Scheme ?

Our Publication Scheme lists the information which Thanet District Council publishes, or intends to publish, which has been approved by the Information Commissioner.

The Publication Scheme will be regularly reviewed and updated as new items are published. We will also add more information as we understand better what information you may want from us.

Model publication scheme as from 1 January 2009

As a result of the Publication Scheme Development and Maintenance Initiative the ICO has introduced a model publication scheme for all public sector organisations which we adopted from 1 January 2009.

Please note that, despite a public authority's duty under section 19 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) to adopt and maintain a publication scheme, it is possible for there to be exempt information within a class of information listed in the Council's publication scheme. This means you may not necessarily be entitled to obtain information contained within documentation listed under the publication scheme.
