Planning Portal - How can we make the process of planning and building easier?

Scott Alford, Head of Business Development, Planning Portal 

Scott will update you on a brief summary of: 

Who we are:

  • History
  • Current (inc stats)
  • Principles – providing a quality service, putting the customer first, building successful partnerships
  • Our role in the process: access to accurate and authoritative information, and delivering quality upfront to improve application submission

Our objectives, recently refreshed to guide a 3-year programme of investment and development.

  1. Reducing invalidation
  • Issues in invalidation
  • FTS
  • Future: Local level validation

  1. Technology innovation to simplify and join-up the process
  • Vision: pre-app to building completion, data linked across stages by unique identifier
  • We already pass data, not just documents to LPAs. We have a national data standard.
  • Future: APIs, interoperability of a variety of systems

  1. Making data accessible
  • MI report just launched – first report is available here.
  • APIs – GLA LDD already in progress, more to follow
  • Future: Content to help applicants make informed decisions

The format of the session will be a 15 minute presentation followed by a 15 minute Q&A.

Speakers:

  • Peter Kemp – Greater London Authority (Host)
  • Scott Alford – Planning Portal

A recording of this session will be available on the #plantalk You Tube channel shortly afterwards.
