Freedom of Information

Freedom of Information Policy (SEStran)

This policy introduces and accompanies the Freedom of Information Publication Scheme for SEStran, as required by the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (“the Act”).

SEStran will comply with the Act and sees it as an opportunity to build and maintain public trust and confidence in SEStran. The Publication Scheme supports SEStran’s policy to make public the facts and the analysis of the facts which SEStran considers relevant and important in framing its policies, proposals and decisions.

The Scheme describes the information that SEStran publishes, in what form it is published, and details of any charges for providing access to the information.

The Scheme has been designed to be as inclusive as possible and to be flexible to allow for future expansion and / or revision.

Requesting Information


Requests for information under the Scheme must be made in writing or in another permanent form, for example, voicemail or video or audio tape.

Requests must state the name and address of the applicant and describe what information is required.

There is no need to cite the Act or explain why information is being asked for.

More Information about the Publication Scheme

If you are dissatisfied at any time with the way a request for information under the Scheme has been dealt with, you may request a formal review by SEStran.

Alternatively you can appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner.
