Beech Parish Council will make available Parish Council information on request. In so doing, the Council is following the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 which includes a Publications Scheme for Parish Councils. Copies of the Scheme, with a table showing what information is accessible, is available on request at Parish Council meetings or can be downloaded by clicking here (PDF 541KB)
Whilst welcoming this initiative, parishioners will be aware that the Parish Council has modest resources. The Council therefore may charge for actual disbursement incurred such as photocopying and postage and packaging. The Publication Scheme will be reviewed annually.
Beech Parish Council has a policy of accountability to residents and aims to be as open and transparent in its dealings as possible. We welcome public interest in the Parish Council.
