Hopeful Towns: BID-BUILDER
NATIONAL DATA LIBRARY
In compiling your bid, it is important to demonstrate the particular needs of the area where you work, compared to the region where you are based or the country as a whole.
The datasets below are all to local authority level. They can help to place your authority in the national context , demonstrating the particular challenges you face and the particular needs that exist.
It might be worth going to the data or insight team within the council to talk through how you use this information. They will often have tools for more sophisticated data visualisation, and may will be able to help with interpretation too.
Alternatively, if you are pressed for time, then the 'How to use' button provides some tips on how to use the data yourself in a proposal.
