Amber Valley Borough Council is committed to being open and transparent about how we work, our decision-making processes and the services we provide.

We have used the Local Government Transparency Code, which recommends the datasets councils should make available as a minimum, as a starting point for deciding what information we should make available.

The data on this page is published under the Open Government License and is available for you to re-use as you like, including for commercial and research activities.

We have also used your feedback and requests made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to identify additional datasets for publication. We will continue to increase the number of datasets that we make available over time, where resources and capacity permit and there is a clear public demand for the information.
