Freedom of information request response - 05237
I would like to request the re-use of the vehicle licensing information (Hackney carriage & Private Hire Vehicle if applicable) contained on your website within the public register. This information would be used for commercial purposes (searchable database) to help prevent and detect crime by the public & enforcement officers. See Page: 11/56 & 12/56 - Examples of misleading actions (England, Wales & Ireland are working on a similar guide) https://www.scotss.org/cars/SCOTSScarsalesguide.pdf Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) https://www.asa.org.uk/news/selling-used-cars-advertising-ex-fleet-vehicles.html The information would be used under the terms of a Open Government Licence (OGL) http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/version/3/ Please will the council advise me if I cannot use a OGL to re-use public sector information.
Further to your request under the Reuse of Public Sector Information Regulations, which was logged under Ref No 05237, I can confirm that you are granted permission to reuse the information available on our website: https://licensing2.eden.gov.uk/PAforLalpacLIVE/1/WcaHome/ for the purposes of: ‘for commercial purposes (searchable database) to help prevent and detect crime by the public & enforcement officers.’
