Updated: Interactive map showcases National Planning Casework Unit data

by on December 2, 2014

Update 21.1.15: The NPCU have advised me that they have updated their interactive tool with data from the most recent quarter.

I thought I’d take a moment to highlight some of the good work that other teams in DCLG are doing to improve transparency in the planning system.

In October the National Planning Casework Unit (NPCU) launched an interactive map to showcase its data. The NPCU manages planning decisions on behalf of the Secretary of State for DCLG.

The interactive map shows the parts of the country and approximate location the NPCU has considered cases from and the decisions taken.

The data in the tool is based on decision data for referrals under the Consultation Direction 2009, Third Party Requests to Intervene, Compulsory Purchase Orders and Environmental Screening Directions from April 2014 onwards.

By releasing the data, the NCPU hopes to provide an open and accessible insight in its casework and increase the information available in the public domain. For future releases the NCPU is looking to increase the amount of data available, including on other case types.

The service forms part of DCLG’s OpenDataCommunities initiative to increase amount of data the public can access.
