The team at DLUHC are working on 4 key work areas to improve the current planning system, all of which make use of digital and data to support the co-creation of future focused, modern planning services. In this talk programme, Eloise Maguire will share more about the work taking place, from making planning data easier to understand, use and trust, to working with Local Planning Authorities to design the next generation of planning services and funding a diverse range of councils to improve the digital tools they use for citizen engagement with the planning process.

Having started this journey, this is an opportuntity to hear the experiences that Plymouth City Council are going through, and some ideas around data standards and maintaining quality.
