Data Transparency

We are committed to the Local Government Transparency Code 2015. The Code sets out key principles for local authorities in creating greater transparency through the publication of public data namely that the data be demand led, open and timely. The Code also prescribes what public data should be released as a minimum requirement. We have listed this information below under ‘transparency data’. Our public data is made up of two types of information:

  1. Information which we publish as a dataset and update periodically, for example, business rate accounts in credit.
  2. Non dataset information that is updated as and when required, for example, senior management salaries.

Open Government Licence

All of our data is available to use or re-use under the Open Government Licence. This is a free open licence for public sector bodies to license the use and re-use of their information and data easily. If you are intending to use or re-use any of our data please note the conditions of the licence. If we require you to make a specific form of attribution, this will be clearly referenced on the information concerned.

The Publication Scheme
Under the FOI Act 2000, all local authorities have to produce a Publication Scheme (1.7MB). This is a directory of information and publications that we already make available, so before you ask for any information, you should check whether it is included in our Publication Scheme. 

The following data is routinely published by us:

Transparency Data

Other Datasets

We are also committed to publishing other datasets where we have recognised a demand for this information through Freedom of Information requests received.

Please note that some data might be removed. This is known as 'redaction' and is required to enable us to comply with the exemptions stated in the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Examples of this include personal information that could identify an individual or information that is commercially sensitive. To ensure transparency any redactions will be clearly noted.
