Local Government Transparency Code | Information and data | Medway Council

Local Government Transparency Code

We are committed to giving you more information and power. This helps you:

  • make more informed democratic choices
  • contribute to the local decision-making
  • shape our local services

Transparency is the foundation of local accountability. It gives you the tools and information you need to play a bigger role in society. The availability of data can also open new markets for:

  • local business
  • voluntary and community sectors
  • social enterprises to run services or manage public assets

The Local Government Transparency Code 2015 explains the main principles for us to offer more transparency through the publication of data. It outlines the minimum requirements for us to publish open data for re-use quickly.

The data on this page is published under The Open Government Licence. This is a free open licence for public sector bodies like us to use and re-use information easily. If you want to use or re-use any of our data, please read the license conditions.
