Local Government Transparency Code 2015
Local Government Transparency Code 2015, published on GOV.UK, sets out the minimum data that we need to publish and how often we should publish the data. We are fully committed to open data and to fulfilling our duties to publish our data under the code.
We are currently developing the data sets required by the Code, with the aim of publishing them all on this 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.
www.data.gov.uk website provides detail on open data, and you can search for data published by central government, local authorities and public bodies.

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.
