INFORMATION FOR PARISHIONERS
The Abbotts Ann Parish Council plans to make Parish Council information available, on written request, to members of the public. In doing so, the Parish Council is following the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. This includes what is called a Publication Scheme for Parish Councils. Copies of the Publication Scheme (A4 sheets with a table showing what information is accessible) are available on request now that the scheme has been approved by the Information Commission. Copies of the table will be available at the monthly Parish Council meetings, posted here on the village web site (www.little-ann.co.uk) and in a folder to be kept in the coffee area of the village shop.
This is a new initiative and as parishioners are aware, your Parish Council has modest resources. We therefore have to charge for this information, to account for some of the cost of production.
The Publication Scheme will be revised as required.
The Abbotts Ann Parish Council has a policy of accountability to residents and an aim to be as open and transparent in its dealings as possible. We welcome public interest and involvement in our community local government.
