Norfolk Data Observatory

26_L.jpg

Organizations in Norfolk had no common and easy-to-use source of data for planning service delivery. This was especially key for the Shaping Norfolk's Future economic partnership. An observatory has been created (www.norfolkdata.net) and populated with data and users have been trained. The range of data provided has been expanded from its original base to include health and crime related data as well as skills, employment, poverty, age etc. It was the first observatory of its kind in the East of England and part of its development fed into the next phase of the commercial offering from the service suppliers. It has provided a business planning service to businesses as well as to partner organizations and is marketed actively to them through trade organizations and chambers of commerce as well as Shaping Norfolk's Future sector groups.
