Happy New Year!
So 2016 is already in full swing and I hope you have all returned refreshed and ready for a busy year ahead!
While most of the country was tucking into to its Christmas turkey and mince pies, watching Star Wars and celebrating the new year, our intrepid team were busy beavering away, continuing the rigorous testing on our new site to make sure it’s ready for launch early this year.
From next week, I’ll start to unveil it to you. We’re really pleased with how it’s shaping up and hope you will be too.
Before I go, a quick update for all you stats fans out there. Last year saw more than 500,000 applications submitted via the Portal to every local authority in England and Wales, with the busiest day topping more than 3,000 applications.
Here’s to a happy, healthy and productive 2016 for all.
