Open Government - transparency data


Test Valley is dedicated to being an open, accountable and transparent local authority. As such we publish a range of information for people to access. This includes a significant amount of information published in the form of reports presented to Council meetings and committees, but other information is also available as open data.

Open data means making the non-personal information we hold freely available to everyone in a format that can be reused.

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.  For more information see the link.
