Open Data

Open data is information held by the government and local councils which is freely available for use and re-use by the public.

The aim is to:

  • Make all data we hold available online (unless private or sensitive)

  • Encourage residents, businesses and anyone else with an interest to use our data to develop applications

  • Increase transparency and accountability.

The Council did previously publish data of commonly requested information relating to business rates. This is also known as Non Domestic Rates (NDR) or National Non Domestic Rates (NNDR). We would also provide information on Council Tax accounts held by businesses and organisations.

There was an Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) First Tribunal judgement (EA/2018/0033), which has highlighted that all taxpayer information is confidential and as such covered by an exemption under Section 41 of the Freedom of Information Act - Information provided in confidence. This is an absolute exemption so is not subject to a public interest test. However, the judgement also held that there was not a strong public interest in support of release under Section 31(1)(a). This was in addition to the information on sole traders and partnerships being exempt under Section 40(2) - Personal Data.

As such the Council has withdrawn this data set on the basis that it is exempt under Section 41 of the Freedom of Information Act. 

The Council considers that Section 41 applies to customers’ accounts but does not apply to accounts where the Council itself is an account holder and is able to provide details, on request, of these accounts subject to Section 40(2) - Personal Data of Individuals or Personal Data relating to living Individuals.
