Talk About Local's Will Perrin asked his twitter followers whya sort of infpormation they would like to see their local council provide.
He got a good list back,besides bin collection and bus timetables
1. property development issues – number and type of contracts going out, number and type of bidders, number and type of successful bidders
2. Break down of council agendas for public perusal in easy-to-digest format – encourages interest in meeting items.
3. What assets do they own (especially land)? Useful for everyone from #allotment campaigners to inclusion & employment schemes
4.Cllr attendance records, expenses, committee membership, changing party affiliation etc
5.What crimes have happened locally (not the crime maps they are rubbish)
