Open data is about increased transparency and about sharing the information we hold with the wider community, to allow them to use the information as they see fit. To achieve this aim, the data must be in open, machine readable formats that can be easily reused.
We’ve created an Open Data section to help:
- Make data we hold available online (unless private or sensitive).
- Encourage residents, businesses and other interested parties to interrogate the data and develop applications, hacks and widgets.
- Increase transparency and accountability.
We have decided that the most important thing is getting data online as quickly as possible. This means that these pages are in continued development and we are encouraging residents to let us know what can be improved and, most importantly, what other data you would like to see made available.
