Wakefield Council has a responsibility, as directed by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), to operate a Publication Scheme, whereby we pro-actively make information available to the public. The Scheme covers a number of different areas, including the services provided by the Council, what money we spend, how we make decisions, how well we are performing and what policies are in operation.
The section of the Council's website which covers the Scheme (please see below) has been designed in such a way as to be easily navigable, with clear subject headings and links to the latest information which is held. This data will be updated on a regular basis.
