A detailed search of records (for example the Burials Register or the Council Minutes) is subject to a charge of £10 per search.

Review of Policy

This Policy was approved by Edwinstowe Parish Council at its meeting on 13 November 2012 and will be reviewed every four years.

Note:

Under Data Protection Legislation, the Council is required regularly to review the information that it keeps and to destroy that which does not form part of its official records. Written notes from Ordinary Meeting minute taking will be destroyed six months after minutes have been approved and signed. Residents wishing to inspect information are therefore requested to telephone the Council office to ensure that the information they require is still available.
