Planning and Building Control services are currently unable to communicate with the public, members and staff across the organisations the planning applications in the context of local infrastructure developments, local amenities, schools, playgrounds, rights of way and ward boundaries.
After a review of planning systems that are available and affordable to small and medium sized authorities we have found that the currently available systems do not provide this holistic view of the wards and local areas.
It is our intention to develop the local digital information via electronic maps to better inform the communities of the plans that could affect them. We intend to collate digital information into a single, easily accessible view.
We have been working on a pilot to draw together digital information from our planning systems, building control systems, land charges system, Council tax database and waste collection information. We have made good progress on extracting the data and now need to formalise the processes and work on a method of communicating this geographic information clearly and consistently.
