Retention and disposal of information


The retention and disposal schedule lists the types of records the Council holds.  It also shows how long records need to be stored before:

  • being destroyed
  • transferred 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

For more information on retention and disposal please contact recordsmanagement@cornwall.gov.uk
