Public Sector Information Holder: Office for National Statistics

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

Information Asset: Parking Fines issued by street/area, only date + time of fine is required

The problem

I and a number of friends have been issued parking fines over the UK and I am wondering where the hotspots are for fining so that I can avoid specific areas just in case I am unable to return to my car within the non-permit holder areas in time.

My ideal solution

The time + date of parking fines issued both on permit only, non-permit within time periods and all other areas so that I can calculate where to make sure I don't leave my car by the frequency of fines given out for that area.

What I would do

I would look to determine which areas are high risk of being given a parking fine and therefore make sure I can avoid those areas.

Information Asset: NHS Organisation IDs

The problem

I'm trying to get the NHS data into my data warehouse. I'm unable to compare it because the NHS uses OrgID and doesn't offer a translation table with addresses so I cannot place these areas roughly on a map. It's the same story with national statistics which use region 'codes' instead of postcodes.

My ideal solution

Lookup tables to be released to allow the integration of this data.

What I would do

Integrate the data into my Business Intelligence solution.

Public Sector Information Holder: ONS

Information Asset: Digital boundaries

The problem

The Office for National Statistics holds a large set of geographical boundary data - administrative, electoral, statistical, health and other datasets - most of which is available on CD free of charge to the general public, but only on request.

Details here:

If it is free, why can't it be made available for download? Surely that would reduce admin costs?

My ideal solution

Each dataset available from the ONS website by clicking a button.

What I would do

I would mashup with datasets to understand what is happening in my local area.
