About LG Inform

Local Government Inform (LG Inform) is a practical response to the local government sector's call for greater freedom to take responsibility for its own improvement and increase transparency with the public. This online service allows you to access, compare and analyse data, and present your findings online or offline.

Developed by the LGA and local authority champions, LG Inform builds on the success of its prototype to give councils and fire and rescue services access to over 1,800 items of relevant contextual and performance data.

The search and reporting functionality allow users to assess performance locally, regionally and nationally across all areas of England. Such intelligence will help local authorities make the right decisions about their local areas and the services they provide.
