    The LGA has a section on their website which deals with transparency. The first sentence reads: “The Government has made transparency and open data a key priority as it fosters accountability, drives improvements in public services by informing choice, and stimulates innovation and growth.” !!!

    LGA sets out details of a £1million breakthrough fund from the Department for Business Innovation and Skills to local governments to enable the release of open data. Did EDDC apply for funds?
