Grants data

Council owned land and assets data

Organisational charts, salaries and pay multiple data

Parking income and expenditure data

The council does not allocate the surplus on its parking account to specific areas of expenditure because income and expenditure is managed at directorate level.

We have therefore used the surplus to offset other Place Directorate-wide expenditure including Streetscene Highways and seasonal weather (which includes gritting and weather-related road repairs).


Social housing property values data

The authority values its social housing stock using a relatively small number of sample properties from which all other property values have been derived and must be therefore treated as indicative only.

The EUV-SH Value is the Existing Use Value as Social Housing. It represents the tenanted sale value. This indicates the value assuming each dwelling continues to be let as social housing in future. It may be considered to be the sum that another registered social housing provider would pay to acquire the property.

The Market Value is an estimate of the open market value.

Business rates data

Business rates (national non-domestic rates) are a government tax on all commercial property. Business rates are payable on most non-domestic properties. If a property is used both for living accommodation and running a business, for example a public house or a shop with a flat above, then both Council Tax and business rates will normally be payable.

This open dataset is a comprehensive list of all current non-domestic (business) rates accounts. It includes all LTD and PLC organisations and non-LTD or PLC organisations such as council properties liable for non-domestic rates.

We have redacted all individual persons from the liable party field due to the Freedom of Information Act 40(2) which sets out an exemption for third party data.

You will find details on these accounts such as account start date, property reference number, business address, rateable value, current relief information and exemption information.

These spreadsheets are produced on a quarterly basis and are produced on the 1st day of every 3rd month. Please allow 7 days from the start of that month for the information to be updated.

Pay policy statements data

The Pay Policy Statement meets the requirements of the Localism Act 2011 (sections 38 to 43) and covers the period 1 April to 31 March. It covers a number of matters concerning the pay of the authority's staff, principally Chief Officers. These policies do not cover or include school staff and is not required to do so.

Public health funerals data

Public health funerals (from 2009 onwards)

These are funerals arranged under Section 46 of The Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984.

Kirklees Council receive a number of Freedom of Information requests in relation to burials or cremations that have been undertaken by the Council, where there has been no next of kin and where information has been transferred to the treasury solicitor. We only provide information that can't be obtained via the bona vacantia website and we don't provide the full address and value of the estate for security reasons.

Our spreadsheet gives the number of funerals, average cost and amount recovered. It will be updated annually.
