Open Data Service

Public Phonebook

After careful consideration, we have decided to remove this feature, and all of its associated data, from the Open Data website.

There are many reasons for this. Some staff are unhappy with their data being available as open data, despite opting to appear in the public phonebook, and we have been careful to honour these requests over time. However, in the past, we have made mistakes - the experimental nature of the open data site makes this inevitable - but have always corrected them and apologised. Unfortunately this isn't good enough any more. Increased legislation and enforcement of personal data makes our previously carefree attitude a liability, and this obviously isn't acceptable. We've therefore taken the very difficult decision to completely remove all personal data from the open data service.
