Every year, councils receive thousands of planning submissions. Application validation and invalid applications represent a common problem for all of them. The alpha project aims to come up with a planning submission service pattern that will reduce the percentage of invalid applications received by planning services. The project is focused on householder applications.
The ‘Reducing invalid planning applications’ (RIPA) project is delivered in Agile, using a user-centred approach and making sure it meets the needs of planning applicants and officers across the UK.
