Local Insight Help Centre


Public access site an introduction

With Local Insight you have the option to opt-in to having a public facing site. This public facing site will be an open site which any member of the public can access. The public-facing site is a clone of what you see on the logged in version of Local Insight and allows site visitors to see the following pages without logging in:

  • Maps page (including datasets which can be chosen by Group Admins)
  • Custom areas 
  • Dashboards 
  • Reports 


Members of the public cannot edit or change the site in anyway.

Benefits of having a public access site

  • Open up data to community groups
  • Can be useful for freedom of information requests 
  • Greater transparency
  • There is no need to set up and manage users
