Data transparency, open data and The Local Government Transparency Code

Through its drive for transparency, the government is encouraging councils to make more of their information available in a way which can be easily shared and reused. This is called open data.

Providing our information in an open data format will provide benefits to residents, businesses and the wider data and developer community.

We've already made some of our data available in this format and we'll be looking to open up further data sets as well as provide access to meaningful performance data.

Our open data

We've been looking for ways of helping developers and website owners access our data and this section lets you explore our data sets.

We want to make the data we hold as easy as possible for people to access and use in the ways they want - whether it is sharing it easily or using it to build something new!

We have a few data sets available at the moment but we're looking to add to this all the time. See how our data can be used.

Current open data

All of the information listed as being currently available in an open data format is attached to this page.
