What is Open Data?

We are committed to publishing as much information and data as we can, free of charge. This Open Data area has been created to help us to:

  • Increase openness and transparency.
  • Make the data we hold freely available online (subject to the Data Protection Act).
  • Encourage the public to interact with and use the data that is available.
  • Publish data in a machine readable format so that it can be re-used.

We publish various categories of information for you to download and reuse in line with the conditions laid out in the Open Government Licence. Details about this licence, which contain implications for users of our data, and other background information can be found in the Open Data section of the Help page.

Some of this data is available in pdf format, if you cannot read this format follow this link to download Adobe reader which is free to use.
