This is a catalogue of links to over 100 datasets which appear to be complete with in-depth descriptions and metadata. They have been provided by the UK Department for Communities and Local Government as part of its Open Data Strategy- a commitment to routinely releasing data outputs in fully open, accessible and re-usable forms. The datasets are provided under the OGL (Open Government Licence). Many of the datasets themselves are downloadable as N-Triples; all of the metadata for each dataset is available in the most common machine-readable formats (including JSON, RDF/XML, Turtle). The Open Data Communities home page also has a link to a SPARQL endpoint.
