11 For the public: Hard to tell how a government policy affects your area For policy makers: Hard to tell what the cumulative impact of government policies is on an area For business: Hard to tell how government policies will affect your business Why does this matter?

12 A website portal where there are layers for each of the key policies and programmes Our researchers have mocked this up for a few examples But fixed format and not interactive Could we take this further? What do we suggest?

13 Example Map : Household Growth and Flood Risk

14 Example Map: Household Growth and Housing Affordability

15 Helps to boost growth More transparent Saves time and money Helps coordinate infrastructure across national borders Some benefits

16 Some questions Should government bring these and other maps together in one place? What mapping information should be included and how would it benefit your organisation? What key policy areas should be covered and how should the information be published? Have we missed anything? Send your comments to Join the or #map4england
