Records management plan

Under the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011 ("the Act") Scottish public authorities must prepare a records management plan ("the Plan") setting out proper arrangements for the management of their records.  Section 1 of the Act requires the authority to submit their plan to the Keeper of the Records of Scotland for his approval.

Following guidance from the Keeper, the Council's Plan is arranged in the following 14 sections:
