Trust and Transparency in Local Government

This Discussion Note follows the ‘Trust and Transparency in Local Government’ roundtable event hosted by Localis in conjunction with the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea (RBKC) on 30th September 2010. The conversation focused on establishing the opportunities and benefits (and potential drawbacks) of transparency in local government, the key obstacles and threats to greater levels of transparency, and how to maximise the utility to residents of data released into the public domain.

The discussion was led by Baroness Hanham, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department for Communities and Local Government and the Minister responsible for Transparency.
