Local Authority Bulletin - January 2021

Features: The Planning Portal is changing – ensure you stay informed!

2021 promises to be a fantastic year in terms of development for the Planning Portal and we are making many changes to our service. We want to ensure we are communicating with the right people at your authority.

At the Planning Portal we are here to support you in the efficient and effective delivery of planning and building services, from the authoritative content on our website to the submission of applications.

We want to keep you updated on progress but more importantly provide ongoing support to your authority and our shared customers – applicants and agents. We can only achieve this by staying in regular contact as we share insights on application submissions and trends, and deliver new projects and services.

To ensure we are engaging with the right people at the right time, please coordinate a response from your local authority by providing us with the key contacts using the survey link above.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ian Foster at
