Planning.data.gov.uk: Making land and housing data easier to find, understand, use and trust
A Talk by Paul Downey
Head of Digital Land,
Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities
About this talk
DLUHC’s new digital Planning Data platform - https://www.planning.data.gov.uk/ - assembles planning and housing data from local planning authorities (LPAs) across England and transforms it into a consistent state. Alongside building and launching the platform, the DLUHC Digital Planning team are creating data standards in collaboration with policy teams and Local Planning Authorities. In this talk we discuss our journey so far, and why we believe making land and housing data easier for anyone to find, understand, use and trust will enable radically better digital services for property and planning, inform planning decisions, reduce uncertainty and delay in the housing system, help people know how to build, and transform the relationship between communities and development.
