This report sets out the Government's broader aims for the future of Local Spending Reports in the context of the next generation of public services and our work to make public data public. We are committed to including data in Local Spending Reports which can readily be provided in this format at reasonable cost. The challenge is to ensure that Local Spending Reports provide more open, transparent and useful information in a way that adds to the greater picture, and helps citizens to hold providers to account, whilst minimising the burden on reporting organisations. This report describes how we will take these aims forward.
