What we’re doing
Lucy Knight – Rolling out the Data Loop
“Taking a look at a typical process – reporting a pothole – we worked our way round the loop a couple of times to think about how data flows in and out of different systems and departments within the council.”
Who we are
Open Data Lead
Devon County Council & LocalGov Digital
Lucy worked in opto-electronics and fine arts before moving into local government, spending the last 15 years at Devon County Council in analytics and policy roles. Alongside the day job Lucy is co-founder of the ODI Devon Node and Devon Open Data Forum, and an illustrator and sketch note artist using physical and digital media. She is currently developing the concept of the data storyboard and, building on her experience of working at the extreme ends of the technical / creative spectrum, advocates for better communication around open data and better communication with data – especially between experts and non-experts.

Open Democracy Data: The details of local council decision making affect everyone’s lives and yet they are often obscured within agendas, minutes and reports. How can we better share the data of local democracy so that it is open to be seen, used and shared?
