PlanTech is generally seen as great opportunity for planning. However, there is often a limited understanding of what it is and what it can do to support planners. This webinar will look at progress being made in developing and implementing digital planning across different parts of the UK. It will explore the opportunities and benefits that can be achieved in using PlanTech to better manage data, support collaboration, provide new ways of engaging with communities and develop more transparent and efficient planning services. As part of this it will examine approaches being taken in Scotland and London. The webinar will also look to the challenges that are faced if we are to embed digital planning approaches into planning services.
