Mission and Vision

Based in the iconic Spectrum building in the heart of bustling Bristol, our dedicated team deliver the highly regarded Planning Portal application service and guidance, supported by our colleagues at our parent company, TerraQuest, in Birmingham. 

Mission

Since 2002, the Planning Portal has helped to transform the planning process, making information and services simpler and more accessible for those involved in the process, be that applicants, agents or local authorities.

Our mission is to continue and build on this, transforming planning and building.

By working in partnership with every local authority across England and Wales and focusing on delivering a quality service to our customers we will continue to be the national home of planning and building regulations information and the national planning application service.

Vision

As a joint venture between the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities and TerraQuest Ltd, our vision is to be a successful, energetic and ethical company that values its employees, respects its customers and provides a first class service to the development industry.

We will carry on building on our successes and continue to develop a world-leading online application service.
