Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 all public authorities are required to have a publication scheme to ensure that information about them is routinely available as part of normal business.
Tower Hamlets Homes is committed to promoting openness and transparency and ensuring that a significant and growing amount of information we hold is readily available without the need for individuals to make a specific requests for information. Tower Hamlets Homes intends to publish as much information as possible, subject to the exemptions which apply under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or other relevant legislation.
This will be done through the Publication Scheme which is a list of information that falls into seven categories identified by the Information Commissioner in a model scheme.
The Publication Scheme will point you to the published information you are seeking or if the information is not published we will notify you whether we intend for it to be published and whether there are any applicable fees or charges for the information requested. All information available on the Tower Hamlets Homes website is free of charge.
