Interactive web-based GIS interface for plan making consultation

Back to Digital Planning Programme Case Studies

Bolsover District Council partnered with The Future Fox to explore simplifying and speeding up plan making through the creation of an interactive web-based GIS interface that produces policies and site allocations based on data rather than documents.

The focus of the consultation was the Shirebrook Growth Plan. This non-statutory planning document sits above the recently adopted Local Plan for Bolsover District and helps inform where additional growth could be directed in future.

The development of an interactive web-based GIS interface allowed citizens to create and submit alternative proposals by deleting and/or adding sites to the map. This use of digital tools helped develop an evidence base on the current threats and opportunities in Shirebrook and to open up a conversation around how planned growth can help address or respond to these.
