    Running down paper – thats great, but LPAs bills for printing costs must have gone up as they now have to print out the copies they need. Are there any authorities that purely work in the ether – i.e. no printing of plans at all?

      Hi Hal,
      sorry for the tardy response.
      There are significant numbers of authorities that have switched to full e-working including the back office.
      It takes a concerted effort and a wilingness to embrace culture change throughout the organisation, but it can be done and ultimately pays dividends.
