Code of Recommended Practice for Local Authorities on Data Transparency

The Code of Recommended Practice for Local Authorities in Data Transparency sets out key principles for local authorities in creating greater transparency through the publication of public data. It is hoped that the publication of this data will help the public to hold politicians and public bodies to account. The list below meets the minimum requirements set out by the DCLG and the Borough Council will build upon this starting point over the coming years. If there is information which you believe should be published under Data Transparency, then please let us know by emailing
