In November 2021, the Department for Levelling Up, and Housing Communities (DLUHC) launched an Expression of Interest (EOI) to find councils who want to improve their existing development management software, so that it supports the vision set out in the Planning for the Future White Paper.
Through the DM Software Pathfinder EOI, councils who wish to work with their current development management software provider could apply for up to £150,000 of funding each.
A separate EOI was launched to fund councils who wish to join the RIPA/BOPS project to design and implement new development management software products.
