Event Details

Local Authority planning applications are one of the most important public datasets there is. From a citizen's perspective, planning applications are hot-buttons that gets even the most apathetic citizen engaged, and from a societal perspective, they are a crucial but underused dataset that paints a vivid picture of how our built environment is changing.


That's why OpenlyLocal has been funded by NESTA to take over the work of PlanningAlerts.com, one of the first local open data services in the UK, to start building the first nationwide open database of planning applications, pulling together planning applications from (ultimately) every council in the UK into a single openly licensed database.


This information day is for local authority officers and those interested in making and utilising open data. Chris Taggart from OpenlyLocal will explain the Planning Alerts initiative and guide people through ways of making their planning data into open data.
