Transparency code

We have an obligation to publish a range of information to comply with the Transparency Code 2015.

The code has been designed to give increased democratic accountability and make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services.

As part of our commitment to transparency and open data, we are continuously reviewing the data sets we make available with a view to increasing the amount of information we make available and the frequency with which we publish it.

All of our data is available to use or re-use under the Open Government Licence. This is a free open licence for public sector bodies to license the use and re-use of their information and data easily.
