Freedom of Information
Do you want to find out how to access information about you, the way we work, the services we provide and the decisions we make?
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) requires that all housing associations/co-operatives in Scotland must produce and maintain a Publication Scheme. This gives information about the way we work, our services and decisions. It details all of the key information that we publish and how you can access it. The Guide to Information is our Publication Scheme and contains links to where you can find all the information listed. It is split into nine easy to understand classes of information, so that you can quickly find what you are looking for. Govan Housing Association Group has adopted the Scottish Information Commissioner’s (SIC) Model Publication Scheme (MPS), and our Guide to Information. The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (“FOISA”) and the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (“EIR”) place a general obligation on Scottish Public Authorities to allow the public access to information that they hold. Both FOISA and EIR are overseen by the Scottish Information Commissioner (“SIC”).
From 11 November 2019 Govan Housing Association will be designated as Scottish Public Authority and will need to make information available in accordance with FOISA and EIR. We have developed a Freedom of Information and Environmental Information Policy.
Govan Housing Association Group’s Guide to Information
We publish all the information that we hold within these nine classes. Once information is published under a class we will continue to make it available for the current and previous two financial years.
If what you are looking for is not here, you can make a Request For Information
Access to information that we hold about you is via a Subject Access Request
Access to environmental information is via an Environmental Information Request
The information that we make available to you is classified under one of nine classes as dictated by the SICO and can be found under one of the following headings:
