Information Asset: Number of cars per household by number of rooms in the property

The Problem

I am unable to find a data set that breaks down into the exact figures I need. This is to form part of a regional parkng strategy. Dorset county council have this information for their area.

My ideal solution

I would like a dataset that shows the number of cars per household broken down into the number of cars per one room/2room/3room etc. I need this data for the whole of Somerset by LSOA. I urgently need information for South Somerset by LSOA

What would I do

This data will be fed into a methodology designed by Dorset County Council to work out the number of car parking spaces required for new developments. This will form part of the Somerset County Councils Regional Parking Strategy which is one of the Modal Strategies in our LTP

Public Sector Information Holder:NHI

Information Asset: Health Insurance Claims - Transactions Data

The Problem

I want to research abuse and fraud in Health Care claims, which burden the Health Care system.

I need two sample data sets - one for training and one for validation. The identity of the patients, providers, physicians, medication, devices and suppliers can be masked and mapped to original data by NHI after submission of results of research.

My ideal solution

To check irregularities in claims; to peg fraud and abuse of claims at 2% of public expenditure on health care.

What would I do

I want to use data mining and analytics to discover patterns, associations, sequence detection, etc., to build suitable models for segmentation of patients/providers, CART, Neural Networks tool, etc., that can aid informed decisions and policy-making.

Public Sector Information Holder: Sport England

Information Asset: Active Places

The problem

The ActivePlaces website (and ActivePlaces power) has a great database of sports facilities in England. However, the website is dated and really lets it down. There is the ability to download the data (through ActivePlaces power), but access is only allowed for Government Departments, Governing bodies of sports, Lottery Distributors and other government organisations.

My ideal solution

I'd like to see the data released as a CSV, or, even better, as linked data

What I would do

Build a more up to date and user friendly front end for ActivePlaces with find my nearest functionality etc.
