Southwark Council

Southwark Council is leading the way in rethinking viability assessments. With the support of FutureGov, we began to understand how digital tools and data can better equip councils, building a data prototype and two further design concepts that illustrated how the viability assessment process could be improved. Recognising the urgency of this work, The Connected Places Catapult convened a partnership with Southwark Council, Tower Hamlets, the Greater London Authority and FutureGov to take the discovery prototypes through to alpha. Through this collaboration, we’ve proved it’s feasible to build something functional with data.
