Unless otherwise indicated the data below is released under the Open Government Licence.
Please note that although we will aim to make things as easy as possible, there may be occasions when we have to change the format of the data that we supply.

We use the following data formats on this website:
- CSV Files - Comma (or Character) Separated Value files are compatible with all types of spreadsheet and data management software and can also be read and edited in a text editor. They are preferable to proprietory file formats such as Microsoft Word or Excel or Adobe PDF. The Government are recommending CSV as a suitable format for open data to be supplied by public bodies and are mandating it in some cases.
- XML Files - XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is a standard format for exchanging information. It is particularly useful for information that will be used on a website.
