Transparency and open data

Our commitment

As an organisation we understand the importance of being open and transparent about the decisions we take and how and where money is spent.

Transparency improves local accountability and it makes it easier for people to challenge and shape their public services.

Our approach

The 2015 Local Government Transparency Code sets out a number of key principles that councils must follow to ensure they publish information in a way that is helpful and relevant.

It also outlines a number of key data sets, which are going to be of most interest to residents.

We've used this code as a starting point but, where possible, we will go further to ensure that as much information as possible is in the public domain.
