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.
We are also very keen to hear about any datasets that you would find particularly useful, as this will allow us to prioritise what we release. Please leave a comment on our “Opening up our data” page.
Some data that we are in the process of publishing is also on the Opening up our data page – we are still working on the best formats and processes to use but are making them available in the meantime as beta versions. We can’t promise that they won’t change in the future but if you let us know you are using them, we’ll keep you informed of our plans.
Contracts and tenders
Information about contracts and tenders that the council has can be found on the Supplying The South West website. Data can be downloaded from there to a spreadsheet.
