City Council publishes performance data

Press Release: 01/05/2013


Information about the work and performance of Winchester City Council is available in a new, easy-to-view format on its website for the first time.

By visiting the ‘data’ section on the site, people can gain a valuable insight into life in the Winchester District and see how the Council is doing against a range of measures shown in clear charts with explanatory text.

For example, visitors to the site can discover the percentage of household waste recycled in the District, the footfall on the lower High Street in Winchester or the total number of visitors to City Council-run museums.

They can find the average number of daily tickets sold for park-and-ride car parks, the percentage approval rates for planning applications or the number of complaints received.

Cllr Stephen Godfrey, Winchester City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Finance and Administration, said

I hope that people will find this information interesting and useful. It gives a fascinating insight into life in our District and shows how the City Council is performing against its targets.

This development is part of our response to the Government’s ‘open data’ agenda and we aim to add more measures and comparative information in due course.

The new information can be found on the City Council’s website at: , where visitors are also able to download the data in a variety of formats.
