Records Management Plan

Midlothian Council’s Records Management Plan sets out its arrangements for the creation, use and disposal of records.  It includes policies, procedures and strategy documents, such as the Council’s Retention Schedule, Records Management Policy and Archive Collection Policy.

The Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011 requires all named authorities under the act to:

  • Produce a Records Management Plan;
  • Name a senior individual responsible for the strategic management of records across the Council.

Our Records Management Plan is based on the Model Plan produced by the Keeper of the Records of Scotland.  It covers the records of both Midlothian Council and Midlothian Council Licensing Board.
