Planning Portal Relaunch
Hopefully, you will know by now that we are launching the new Planning Portal website over the Easter weekend (24-27 March 2016).
Just a reminder that the existing site will be taken offline tonight (Thursday 24 March) at 17:00 and the new site will be available from 09:00 on Tuesday 29 March at www.planningportal.co.uk. Don’t forget to update your bookmarks!
If you are a registered user, your account details and any draft/submitted application data which has been modified since 1 July 2015 will be transferred to the new site. However, you will need to perform a quick set-up before you access the new application service for the first time:
- When you first sign in to the new Planning Portal you will be asked to ‘Set-up your account’.
- Your user name and registered email address will then be displayed. If these are correct and you still have access to the email address please click on the ‘Confirm account and send activation email’ button.
- The system will then send you an email. You will need to follow the instructions in the email to complete the process.
- Once activated, you will be sent a new temporary password that will need to be changed the first time you sign in.
And that’s it! Once you’re in, you will have access to all the functions and facilities you are familiar with but will quickly notice some significant improvements and a new look and feel.
We have published a series of short videos highlighting the new features on the blog if you want to take a look while you are tucking into your chocolate eggs.
Have a good Easter!
