Portal updates: Welsh NMAs and sustainable development indicators and support for .docx

by on May 13, 2015

This Friday we will be rolling out some  improvements to our online application service.

Firstly, applicants will be able to submit Non-Material Amendments to authorities in Wales online. The form will be available from the form chooser.

Secondly, if your local authority is using the most up-to-date Portal connector you will also be able to submit the new Welsh sustainable development indicator data automatically to LPA back-office systems.

Finally, we have also made a change to our system to let applicants submit .docx Word attachments with their applications.

The site will be offline between 05:00 and 07:00 while we make this change.

  1. I continually find case officers making decisions and expressing their own personal views regardless of local or national policies. How can such behaviour be dealt with ?

  2. Sad that you accept docx files instead of insisting on the older doc versions and thereby encouraging sustainability and avoiding the plundering of scarce resources involved in everyone having to upgrade their software meaninglessly every few months.

      To clarify, the .docx file type has been added, but older versions of Word can still be submitted. No need to upgrade your software, but it is easier for those who have the newer versions who don’t have to convert to an old file type.
