The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), along with all other Whitehall departments, published its first open data strategy in June 2012.
This second document lays out a refreshed open data strategy for the department. It follows the principles of the Open Data White Paper and builds upon the G8 Open Data Charter; the UK government’s response to the Shakespeare review of public sector information; and the National Information Infrastructure. It provides a set of principles that will be applied by DCLG and its arms length bodies to embed transparency principles and the publishing of open data as part of our day-to-day business.
