Open data logoOpen data

Open data is about making non-personal information held by government freely available. This can benefit both you and the council through:

  • transparency and accountability - publishing the information that we use
  • driving public service improvement - helping you to challenge our decisions
  • generating economic growth - enabling use of the data by small and large businesses, and
  • helping democracy - giving you the information you need to engage in the political process.

This page lists all the data sets that we publish. You can re-use the information freely as it is provided under the same terms as Terms and conditions ( website). If you build any systems using the data please let us know so that we can list them here.

If you would like a copy of any of the information in a different format, please contact us. Please also let us know if there is any information that we hold, which you would like to see published here.
