Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by Scottish Public Authorities. Members of the public already have the right of access to information about themselves under the Data Protection Act 1998 but this new Act greatly extends this right from 1 January 2005.
Guidance on the information that we make available and how to access it is provided in our Model Publication Scheme/Guide to Information. This Guide covers information that is available in respect of both the Assessor and Electoral Registration Officer for the Lothian Valuation Joint Board and the Lothian Valuation Joint Board itself.
