Freedom of Information Policy
Stratford St Mary Parish Council, recognising that the Freedom of Information Act 2000* imposes a duty on public authorities to provide advice and assistance to people who wish to make, or have made requests for information held by the authority, and sets out a Code of Practice to facilitate their doing so, confirms that it adopts that code (see Annex to this statement) and follows its recommendations when responding to a ‘Freedom of Information’ request.
The FOI legislation is wholly retrospective and applies to all information held by a public authority, regardless of its date
