Openness and accountability are central to how we operate. We work on the principle of making as much information as possible publicly available. This means that any individual – including tenants and residents – can access Association documents like minutes of meetings, policies, reports, financial accounts, audit reports etc. The only time access will be restricted is if the information is commercially ‘sensitive’ – commercially sensitive includes things like the make up of a tender list for a ‘live’ contract and such like.
As well as getting access to information on the Association, tenants can get access to the information we hold on them. This information is known as personal ‘data’ and how we deal with it is covered by the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation.
The Environmental Information Regulations affect North View, as does (from 11th November 2019) the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. Click from the list of tabs on the right for more detail.
