Cambridge City Council

Open data: Transparency in local government

We are committed to being open about how we work, our decision-making processes and the services we provide.

The local government transparency code requires us to publish certain information. We also use feedback and common freedom of information requests to identify other data to publish.

The datasets on this page are published under the Open Government Licence. You can use them for any purposes, including for commercial and research activities.

Where possible, we publish data in two formats:

  • a ‘human-readable’ format, such as PDF
  • a ‘machine-readable’ format that does not need any specific software, such as CSV or XML
