The Town Council is required by the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) to adopt a Publication Scheme. The purpose of the scheme is to be a means by which local councils can make a significant amount of information available routinely, without waiting for someone to specifically request it. The scheme is intended to encourage local councils to publish more information proactively and to develop a greater culture of openness and transparency.
Newton Abbot Town Council has adopted the Model Publication Scheme. This scheme includes some core information and some optional information.
