Open data

The Council wants to ensure that they publish open and transparent data which can be reused by local developers and citizens.

In addition to this commitment, the Department for Communities and Local Government published a revised Local Government Transparency Code on 1st April 2015. Local authorities are required to publish open data as specified in the Code. You will see below a list of the open data sets we currently provide. If you require data not listed in any of the data sets listed below, you may be able to access the information via a Freedom of Information Request.
