Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Local Government Transparency

To promote openness and transparency, the UK government recommends that local authorities publish specific key datasets. These are listed in the Department for Communities and Local Government’s (DCLG) Local Government Transparency Code 2015.

Below are links to the mandatory data and information that the Authority is required to publish quarterly, annually and only once. Any information currently not available will be published when it becomes available.

All of the information published under the code can be used and re-used under the terms of the Open Government Licence, published by the National Archive – please familiarise yourself with the terms of the licence before re-using any of the data.
