What is meant by "re-use"?
Information is generally produced by
Worcestershire County Council as part of its statutory duty to carry out public
functions (its public task). A re-use of that information will occur when that
information is used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally
The Regulations do not require WCC to permit re-use of its documents. However, where we do permit a re-use to one party for a purpose which is outside the scope of our public task, the Regulations require us to consider requests from others in a fair and transparent manner. Where re-use is permitted by more than one party, this must be on the same terms and conditions for comparable categories of re-use.
