Transparency data

We are committed to being open and transparent about how we work, our decision-making processes and the services provided. As part of this commitment we publish the following relevant data to increase democratic accountability and to comply with the requirements of the Local Government Transparency Code 2015.

Anyone can use our data. 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 order to assist residents in locating the information, we have grouped it by category. Find out more about the overview and scrutiny transparency commission.

What is open data?

The idea of open data is that non-personal information held by government and local councils should be freely available for anyone to use.

We want to make our data available for the benefit of everyone, so that:

  • we increase the transparency and accountability of what we do;
  • you can re-use, remix and share the data in new and interesting ways;
  • you can use the data to create useful applications and websites.

What data is available?

The open data currently available from us is listed below. Over time we will be making more information available for you to re-use and share. If you have ideas for other data that you think would be useful to be available, please email foi@towerhamlets.gov.uk
