Data from elsewhere

You’ll need to check the terms and conditions on each site as not all of them will release their data under the same conditions as the Open Government Licence.

Who can use the data?

Anyone can use our data listed with only a few restrictions. You don’t have to apply or ask for permission, but you do have to agree to the terms of the Open Government Licence for public sector information.

In short, this allows you to copy, publish, distribute and adapt the data (including commercially). If you use the data, you should acknowledge us as the source and provide a link to the licence. You must not use the data in a way that suggests any official status nor that we endorse you or your use of the data. Your use of the data must not be misleading nor misrepresentative and you must comply with the Data Protection Act 2018 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003.

The terms of the licence are compatible with any Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 licence. This means you can mix our data with any Creative Commons licensed material to create a derivative work that can be distributed under any Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Licence.

If you develop applications with the data, we’d appreciate it if you would follow the code of conduct.

What can I do with the data?

You are free to choose how you use the data. For example:

  • You may just want to examine the data to get a better understanding of local issues or of how we work.
  • You could republish the data on your blog or website.
  • If you are a software or web developer, you could use the data as part of a web application or mashup.

Much of the data is provided in its raw state so we are really interested in seeing you take it and turn it into online applications, websites or mobile apps that people will find useful.

If you use the data in a clever or interesting way, let us know – we’d love to highlight what you have done here.
