What land and housing data do you need?


location Newspeak House | 30th May, Drop in, 12.30pm - 5pm

Tell the government what land and housing data you need

The digital land data team are a new team at the ministry for housing communities and local government. We’ve been set up to help make it easier for people to access the data they need about land and housing. We’re holding an open meeting at Newspeak House so that anyone can drop in and ask us questions about data, tell us the data they need and the problems they have. Come along for as little or as much as you like.

We will:

  • show what we’ve done so far
  • discuss what data people need
  • support people to navigate the existing datasets

One way we think the digital land data team can help is to make it easy for different people to find the information they need when they make the decision to move house, build houses or plan local policies. We know that information about land and housing is hard to find, hard to use and hard to reuse. We’d like to make this better.

We’ve found roughly 300 existing datasets, published by around 400 different public sector organisations and done some work to tidy them up. Now we’re leaving the office and asking you to help us work out:

  • what data is most needed
  • what data is missing
  • what are the problems with the data

We will be in Newspeak House, May 30th. Drop in anytime between 12.30pm - 5pm. Come and join us.

If you can't make it, you can still get involved:
