Retention and Disposal

The Council's retention and disposal schedule is a control document.

The schedule lists the types of records the Council holds.  As well as the time they need storing before:

  • destruction
  • transfer to the Council's Archives

The retention and disposal schedule applies to all records, regardless of format.

The benefits of using the schedule are:

  • Records are available when necessary to enable Council business and meet legal requirements
  • Personal data is only held for as long as necessary in line with data protection legislation
  • Historical and legal records get transferred to the Council's Archives to store forever
