Open data

As part of our commitment to accountability and transparency we have put together a range of information about how the council operates, our staff and what we spend.

Unless otherwise stated, all the data are made available under the Open Government Licence which means you can reuse them if you wish. Where possible the data are also available to download. More information about the file formats used, and the computer programs needed to view them, can be found on the Data Formats page.


As the number of datasets increases our open data has been grouped into the following topics:

The council, staffing and pay
Including information about senior employee salaries, councillor allowances and expenses and trade unions

Spending and finance
Including spending over £500, grants contracts and tenders.

Highways, land and buildings
Including parking and the location of council properties.
