Open data and transparency
We are committed to open data and transparency. Open
data means making the non-personal datasets we
publish on our website available to everyone in a format that
can be reused.
Anyone can use our published datasets. You don't have to apply
or ask for permission, but you do have to agree to the terms of the
Open Government Licence for public sector information.
You are free to choose how you use the data. For example:
- You may just want to examine the data to get a better
understanding of local issues or of how we work.
- You could republish the data on your blog or website.
- If you are a software or web developer, you could use the data
as part of a web application or mashup.
What data is available?
Some of the open data currently available from us is listed
