As per the Information Commissioner’s Office advice on the operation of this scheme, Thurston Parish Council, at its full Parish Council Meeting in November 2008, adopted the new Model Publication Scheme, unedited and as prepared by the Information Commissioner’s Office. The Publication Scheme contains details as to the information that the Parish Council holds and the manner in which it will be made available to the public.
