Reuse of public sector information

Reuse of public sector information

The Reuse of Public Sector Information Regulations are intended to encourage and make it easier to re-use information produced by public organisations.

Reuse means the use of information for any purpose other than that for which it was originally produced. For example, this would mean an individual, company or other organisation taking information that we have produced and republishing it or using it to produce a new resource.

You can find out more about reusing public sector information below:

What is public sector information

Public sector information means any information which is produced, held or distributed by a public sector body as part of its public task.

This information can be in any format and includes reports, financial data, codes of practices, public records, statistics, images, press releases, publication schemes and information which the council holds the copyright to.

Information that we can't release

Some information cannot be released under the regulations:

Reusing information
