Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (the Act) was passed by the Scottish Parliament on 24th April 2002 and received Royal Assent on 28 May 2002. It came fully into force on 1st January 2005 and will introduce a general right of access to information held by public authorities.
Subject to certain conditions and exemptions, any person who makes a request in writing (or some other permanent form) to a public authority will be entitled to receive it.
Section 23 of the Act requires each public authority to maintain a publication scheme. The publication scheme gives details of the information that the authority publishes, the format(s) in which it is available, any charges which apply and who to contact. The Highland Council's publication scheme (which Coaching Highland falls within) was approved by the Office of the Scottish Information Commissioner in May 2004. The full scheme is available below:
To request information available to you under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act, read the Highland Council Publication Scheme document above and follow the instructions for "Sport Development and Strategy".
