Transparency in Local Government

Transparency in Local Government

In order to promote openness and transparency, the Government has recommended that all Local Authorities publish a number of key datasets. A list of these datasets including an overview of what they should include is available to view in the Department for Communities and Local government transparency code 2015 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
Below is an abstract from the Council's main publication scheme, focusing on those data sets listed in the code.

You are encouraged to use and re-use the data that is available under this license with only a few conditions. Use of material expressly made available under this license (the 'Information') indicates your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the license.
