Access to service remains unrestricted on-campus and off-campus. The description of the service has been amended, and how reads as follows:

Nottingham City Council’s interactive statistical website with thematic maps presenting anti-social data, census of population data, crime data, fire & rescue data, and indices of deprivation. It also has access to customer data from Experian’s Mosaic database product.
