To support our commitment to transparency, involvement and innovation we will work towards making all public data (that is not sensitive or personal) freely available in a variety of formats. We have started by opening up some of our existing datasets.
We recognise that the council does not have all of the answers. By encouraging residents, staff and partners to use our data we are confident that this will raise awareness of issues, offer fresh perspectives and opinions on how to improve services in the borough and enable them to hold us to account on the quality of services we provide and how we spend our money.
We understand that raw data is not something that everyone is able to use and understand, so we will analyse and present some of the most important information and we will publish the data in a variety of formats so that businesses, local community groups and residents can re-use the data in new and innovative ways. We are encouraging residents to email us to let us know what can be improved and, most importantly, what other data you would like to see made available.
Anyone can use our data listed below with only a few restrictions. 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'.
And if you require information which is not listed below you can submit a request under the Freedom of Information or Data Protection Acts by clicking on the FOI link which will take you to the relevant page. Please search our disclosure logs to see if your question has been previously submitted.
