Council data and information listings (Publication Scheme)


The government has made transparency and open data a key priority; it opens up government and public services through the publication of non-personal information and data which makes the public sector more accountable to communities and businesses. It also helps to drive improvements in services by informing choice, and stimulates innovation and growth.

The revised Local Government Transparency Code was published in October 2014 and includes:

  • the key principles in creating greater transparency through the publication of public data
  • the datasets that local authorities must make available to the public.

Open data is about making public information freely available for everyone to use and re-use. The range of data that the council is committed to publishing is below in the Publication Guide and includes the information and data which have been made available as part of the Transparency Code. The information and datasets are licensed under the Open Government Licence. If you are using the information and datasets, you need to acknowledge the source of the information.
