Transparency in local government
We are committed to being open and transparent about how we work, our decision-making processes and the services we provide.
In order to promote openness and transparency, the government has recommended that all local authorities publish a number of key datasets. A list of these datasets including an overview of what they should include is available to view in the Department for Communities and Local Government's Local Government Transparency Code 2015.
Our Publication scheme is a guide to the information that we publish on our website as a matter of routine and its aim is to make the majority of information available to you so that you do not need to make a specific request to us.
