Data Protection Policy
In general, the records held by the council can be divided into two types; personal data and everything else. We do not disclose personal data to anyone without authority – it must either be your personal data, or you must show that you have the permission of the person you are enquiring about.
Freedom of Information Policy
For all other information held by the council, the freedom of information act applies. This guarantees your right of access to the information held by Hockley Parish Council. There are some exemptions to what you can see, but they are quite sensible and minor restrictions.
For details of what kinds of documents we hold, and if we charge for them, you should refer to the Publication Scheme.
