About open data
Open Data is information held by the Government and local councils which is freely available for use and reuse by the public.
Local Government Transparency Code 2015
We are fully committed to Open Data and to fulfilling our duties to publish our data under the Local Government Transparency Code 2015. The Code sets out the minimum data that we need to publish, the frequency it should be published and how it should be published. For more details about the Code, see the Local Government Transparency Code 2015 on GOV.UK.
We are currently developing the data sets required by the Code, with the aim of publishing them all on our website by the end of December 2017, at the latest. Some of this data is already available (below) and we will add to it as other data sets become available.

Counter fraud investigation falls under the remit of the Senior Auditor. As we previously transferred our housing stock, we have not used powers under the Prevention of Social Housing Fraud (Power to Require Information) (England) Regulations 2014 or similar. In the year 2016/2017 there were no cases of suspected fraud.

We transferred all housing stock to Eden Housing Association in 1997.
We have four members of staff who are union representatives (including health and safety representatives), none of whom spend 50% or more of their time on union duties.
All grants to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations are published annually.
