Transparency

In this section you will find information that we have published for transparency. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for additional data you would like to see in this section.

The data on this page is published under the Open Government Licence and is available for you to re-use as you like, including for commercial and research activities. Where possible we have made data available in both a 'human-readable' format (such as PDF) and an open, 'machine-readable' format that is not dependent on any specific software (such as CSV or XML).

Land and building assets

We publish details of our land and building assets in accordance with the Local Government Transparency Code.  You can view this information on a map and download from data.gov.uk.

We also use data.gov.uk to publish data.

We are committed to being open and transparent about how we work, our decision-making processes and the services we provide. We therefore publish details of the  icon value of the social housing assets [277.39KB]  we owned as at the 1 April 2015.  We account separately for our housing stock in the Housing Revenue Account using the "Existing Use Value for Social Housing" (EUV) as defined by Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). We use this widely recognised valuation approach as it reflects that the properties are social housing with tenants. This reduces their value, compared to a market value which would be based on vacant sale.

Publication of this information is not intended to suggest in any way that tenancies will end to realise the market value of properties.

Corporate enforcement policy

The  icon Corporate Enforcement Policy [76KB]  sets out our approach to getting compliance with regulatory requirements and applies to all our regulatory functions. It applies to all services where we can enforce against a person, organisation or company to make them comply with the law.

Relevant services include, but are not limited to, environmental health, food safety, noise nuisance, health and safety, licensing, anti-social behaviour, waste offences (including fly tipping), dangerous dogs/dog fouling, planning and housing. Many of these areas, such as planning, have more detailed service specific enforcement policies within the umbrella of this corporate policy.
