Freedom of Information
A Duty of the Parish Council
Under the Freedom of Information Act, 2000 it is the duty of all public authorities, including Parish Councils, to adopt and maintain a publication scheme and respond to individual requests for information.
Cocking Parish Council has considered and adopted the Model Publication Scheme for public authorities, prepared and approved by the Information Commissioners Office. The purpose of the scheme is to make the maximum amount of information readily available at minimum inconvenience and cost to the public. Material which is published and accessed on this website will always be provided free of charge, but direct costs such as photocopying, postage and packaging and costs directly incurred as a result of viewing information may be made, but will be kept to a minimum.
Not found what you want?
If you want to know about something not covered by the material on this website that we have published under that scheme, you can address a request for information to:
The Clerk to Cocking Parish Council
46 Highfield Road
West Sussex PO22 8PH
