Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations

The directive was introduced to allow people to apply to re-use information held by public sector organisations. This means that the information could be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which the document was originally produced.

Open Data

The Open Data initiative allows free access to non-personal information data sets that local councils hold.  This will enable

  • increased transparency and accountability
  • re-use of the data under the Open Government Licence
  • use the data to create new useful applications
     

*If you re-use the Council's data you should acknowledge the Council as the source and  provide a link to the licence.  You must not re-use the data in a manner that suggests the Council endorse you or your use of the data or that you have some sort of official status.
