Development data automation – addressing the shortage of delivery data

This project aimed to prove the concept of automating the flow of planning application data: from applicant through the Local Planning Authority, to the regional authority, and out to the public for more effective data collection.

Obtaining even limited data on consented development is costly and labour intensive. Data is often outdated before it can be used for policy development or decision making.
