Peterlee Town Council Publication Scheme

The Information Commissioner's Office has a model publication scheme to help local councils make relevant information available to the public. The Town Council adopted this scheme in October 2016 and we're always working to improve the quality and accessibility of the information available to the public under the scheme.

The scheme is available as a searchable table below. The purpose of this scheme is to make the maximum amount of information readily available at minimum inconvenience and cost to the public. Where we can, we've produced a short explanation and links to the information where it is available online.

Material which is published and accessed on a website will be provided free of charge.

Charges may be made for actual disbursements incurred for information not available online such as:
- photocopying
- postage and packaging
- the costs directly incurred as a result of viewing information.

Charges may also be made for information provided under this scheme where they are legally authorised, justified, and are in accordance with the schedules of fees which is published by Durham County Council at any given time.

If a charge is to be made, confirmation of the payment due will be given before the information is provided. Payment may be requested prior to provision of the information.

If you have any questions about the publication scheme please contact Ian Morris, Town Clerk by email
