In the spirit of transparency, we have started to publish a number of datasets for which we are responsible.

The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has committed local authorities to publish items of spending over £500 from January 2011. From August 2012, data is for spending items £250 and above.

The data on this page covers payments to our suppliers and other recipients. Some personal data has been removed to comply with data protection law.

The data is presented as comma separated value (CSV) files which can be read by text editors and spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel and Open Office. To save the file to your computer, use right mouse click and select "save target as" or "save link as".
