Information available from Galleywood Parish Council under the model publication scheme
This document lists information that Galleywood Parish Council provides in order to meet our commitments under the model publication scheme set out by the Information Comissioners office.
The Government expects Galleywood Parish Council to make the information in this definition document available unless:
- it does not hold the information;
- the information is exempt under one of the FOIA exemptions or Environmental Information Regulations exceptions, or its release is prohibited by another statute;
- the information is readily and publicly available from an external website; such information may have been provided by the public authority or on its behalf. The authority must provide a direct link to that information;
- the information is archived, out of date or otherwise inaccessible; or,
- it would be impractical or resource-intensive to prepare the material for routine release.
The document is not meant to give an exhaustive list of everything that is covered by our publication scheme. The legal commitment is to the model publication scheme, and Galleywood Parish Council looks to provide as much information as possible on a routine basis.

Publishing datasets for re-use
Galleywood Parish Council must publish under our publication scheme any dataset we hold that has been requested, together with any updated versions, unless we are satisfied that it is not appropriate to do so. So far as reasonably practicable, we must publish it in an electronic form that is capable of re-use.
If the dataset or any part of it is a relevant copyright work and the Galleywood Parish Council is the only owner, we must make it available for re-use under the terms of a specified licence. Datasets in which the Crown owns the copyright or the database rights are not relevant copyright works.
The Datasets Code of Practice recommends that we make datasets available for re-use under the Open Government Licence.
The term ‘dataset’ is defined in section 11(5) of FOIA. The terms ‘relevant copyright work’ and ‘specified licence’ are defined in section 19(8) of FOIA. The ICO has published guidance on the dataset provisions in FOIA. This explains what is meant by “not appropriate” and “capable of re-use”.
