The Local Government Association published some of its technical guidance for local authorities in ‘commentable’ format, enabling local authorities and others to ask questions, suggest refinements and share parts of the documents more easily with colleagues:

The Local Government Group in collaboration with the Local Public Data Panel is publishing a set of guides to offer practical help to meet both immediate targets of publishing data, and to adopt approaches that will add most value for local people and public services over the longer term.

This is a rapidly evolving and innovative agenda, so the guides are not static, mandatory requirements but rather they are ‘live’ documents that are open for you to comment on and offer the benefits of your experience.
