Senior local authority managers were recently briefed about our digital and data programmes at the second in a series of collaborative events.
The digital transformation days, jointly run by HM Land Registry and the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), explored the potential for joint working between central and local government.
Key speakers included Surrey County Council, the Coal Authority and Norway’s Infoland who helped build a two-way digital conversation.

“These events bring local and central specialists together to explore how digital can change local services and the way we work together through ‘show and talk’ sessions. It was fascinating to hear from HM Land Registry and the Coal Authority about their digital journey and to discuss with local representatives the impacts there might be for local authorities of this work in central government. This discussion covered areas such as re-use of data, approaches to digital and potential changes to local and central organisations.”
We’re planning further events around the country and will be releasing details of how local authorities can attend.
