Consultation description

This consultation is about helping to shape how Defra decides what data it publishes, and how.

Defra uses and collects a lot of data. We want to encourage people to use and to challenge our data. Our data and information should benefit those that ultimately pay for its creation. We want you to be able to access as much data as possible, as early as possible but there are some inevitable constraints. Some datasets need personal data extracting and others contain a complex mix of commercial and other constraints. Our challenge is to establish a priority order for publication based on user need.

This document is a draft of how we plan to do this. We are keen to use your feedback on the draft over the next couple of weeks.

Any feedback regarding this document should be sent to us at: transparency@defra.gsi.gov.uk or by commenting alongside the blog post
