This demonstrator app was developed by Dale Ridley at DCLG using open data from .

The app was originally designed to assist the public in accessing services and provides easy to navigate menus which list the services available in their local council area or area of choice. In this version users can also view selected data sets held by DCLG for the local area and compare with data for other authorities. A description of each data set is included and further data sets will be added without the need to upgrade the app so check regularly what is available.

Information for English councils only is included, on start-up where a user’s location is not within a council boundary the user can enter a postcode , search for an authority by name or pick the default. The user can switch to another authority at any point.

The app is part of a wider Government agenda to present and communicate information more effectively, DCLG would therefore welcome your feedback by email to
