Freedom of Information
It has always been Inverclyde Leisure’s policy to be open and accountable in respect of its approach to policy formulation, delivery of services and willingness to share public information.
Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (“the Act”) enables any person to obtain information from Scottish public authorities.
This legal right of access includes all types of ‘recorded’ information held by Scottish public authorities. From 1st January 2005 any person who makes a request for information must be provided with it, subject to certain conditions.
The Act also places an obligation on all Scottish public authorities to adopt and maintain a 'Publication Scheme', describing the classes of information which it publishes or intends to publish, how it does so, and any fees associated with these publications, was approved by the Scottish Information Commissioner in March 2007.
From 1st April 2014, Inverclyde Leisure will be required to answer FOI requests and publish public information via a publication Scheme. Inverclyde Leisure has adopted the Scottish Information Commissioner’s Single Model Publication Scheme in its entirety.
The Scheme is available in portable document format. To view this document you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader. This Reader can be freely downloaded from the Adobe web site.
It has always Inverclyde Leisure’s policy to be open and accountable in respect of its approach to policy formulation, delivery of services and willingness to share public information.
In this respect, operation of the Freedom of Information Regime reinforces this approach through the introduction of a formal process for providing information which is not routinely made available.
It is important to know that Inverclyde Leisure already places a large amount of information in facilities such as Leisure Centres and Community Facilities.
In addition, a considerable amount of information about Inverclyde Leisure and activities (including the Publication Scheme) is published on the website. When seeking information about Inverclyde Leisure, please make full use of this website, to find out whether the information you are looking for is already available on-line.
