Retention schedule

Corporate retention schedule

This corporate retention schedule has been drafted in order to assist the council in its ongoing compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (EU), Environmental Information Regulations and related information legislation.

Our corporate retention schedule is now held in sections as shown below for ease of searching.

To enable compliance with information related legislation, the council needs to know where all its information is, how long it should be kept for and what reasons we are keeping it for, along with a well-managed corporate disposal policy.

The schedule is a ‘living document’ that will be amended and modified as and when retention details change, new information is obtained, or regulations and legislation that govern information and its use are introduced or changed
