Who Owns My Neighbourhood? is a cool new project from Kirklees Council. Supported by NESTA, according to the blurb it:
…is a service that helps local people take responsibility for the land, buildings and activities where they live and work.
Basically, you bung in a postcode from the Huddersfield area and it plots who owns which bits of land on a map.
The project blog expands on this:
Who Owns My Neighbourhood? aims to give people a starting point for getting things done in their own neighbourhoods. We hope this service will make it easier for people to have conversations about their local area and for us to answer each other’s questions by sharing what we know. We want people to think about what personal responsibility we are each willing to take for the place where we live, and how we might be able to help each other to look after it.
Will be an interesting project to track.
Looks interesting does it support US zip codes or just UK?
