What is re-use?
The Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations (PSIR) allow people to ask to re-use council information for their own purposes.
Re-use means using the information for a purpose other than the purpose for which the document information was originally produced. This could, for example, be for commercial, research or publication reasons.
