Are you Better Connected?

by on May 19, 2016

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that we are working with the organisers of Better Connected Live to deliver a bespoke session on planning.

Better Connected has been assessing local authority websites from a customer perspective since 1999, but this is the first event of its kind.  It’s being held in central Birmingham next Tuesday and Wednesday, and our planning session will include:

  • Vicky Sargent and Helen Williams at Better Connected about the programme overall and the planning results
  • Pete Flynn at Liverpool City Council
  • Scott Alford at Planning Portal

The session, sponsored by Arcus Global, is open to anyone involved in or interested in local authority planning.  You can find out more about it by watching this short interview with me by Public Service Digital.

Bookings are about to close, so this is your last chance…  Register here as a Planning Portal user and you’ll get a discount.

We look forward to seeing you there.

    Good afternoon,
    I tried to submit an application on the portal and found one of the plans was rejected as too large. I had to email to the council concerned the rejected plan, not good.
    The portal should be capable of delivering any size plan otherwise it becomes very messy.
    Do you agree?
    Regards,

      Hi Neil. At the moment the system can only take files up to a max of 5mb (each) so that all LPAs can receive and process them. We’re planning to allow LPAs to increase limits for their own applications shortly as many can now accept larger files. I’ll keep you posted via the blog. Sarah
