Releasing open data is important to local and national government because:
- it can help transparency
- it can help accountability
- it can help secure value for money and savings.
This is supported by Government. Former Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles, asked local government to publish all council spending over £500 as part of a spending transparency project.

'Redacted ' means that a piece of information has been removed from publication. This can be for a number of reasons set out by Government. This could be because the information is personal data and could identify an individual, such as a foster carer, a location of a women’s refuge, a council tax benefit recipient or could be information that is commercially confidential.
Publishing open data freedom of information (FOI) requests
In the spirit of openness, we are looking to make public answers that arise from open data. This will help reduce the need for FOI.
