This page is a list of data sets that Chichester District Council has opened up. Open data is about increasing transparency in government. It's also about sharing the information we hold with the wider community to build useful applications.

The Local Government Transparency Code

The local government transparency code has been issued with the intention of placing more power into citizens' hands and increasing democratic accountability. The code requires local authorities to publish a range of information to make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services. The code can be viewed in full on the Local Government Transparency Code  website.
