The coalition’s localism agenda, to the extent that it has been followed through, relies on the increasingly free availability of Government Data for its success. The availability of this Open Government Data, however,solves nothing: as many writers have pointed out, such data needs to be interpreted and interpretation is always a function of a collective – what has been called an interpretative or epistemic community. In this article we question the possibility of such local epistemic or interpretative communities emerging in the English context.
