Smarter Planning – a new way of working
This week we are launching an initiative to encourage and support best practice in the electronic submission of planning applications – something close to my heart.
The initiative, called Smarter Planning, is a partnership between planning agents, local planning authorities and the Portal.
It’s a recognition that the industry needs to work together to streamline and improve the planning process – now more than ever.
By pledging a commitment to the Smarter Planning scheme participants will have access to free training, best practice guidance and advice from the Planning Portal.
This is an important step in our mission of supporting the industry in making the most of the efficiencies and cost savings of electronic planning.
More information on how planning agents and local authorities can take part in the Smarter Planning scheme is available from this Portal web page.
Our account managers will be in touch shortly with more information.
