Proposal 20: Innovation, future-proofing and the digital transformation of the planning
There are many opportunities to make planning work better through the use of information technology.
Why we are making a change
Following the success of ePlanning and eDevelopment Standards the planning service should continue to pioneer the digital transformation of public services.
What we are doing
We have established a Digital Task Force, consisting of technology innovators and those who know about the planning service, to affect and influence change. The Task Force will be chaired by the Minister for Local Government and Housing. The first meeting will be held on 23 August 2017.
How we will deliver change
- Primary legislation – no
- Secondary Legislation – no
- Guidance – yes
- Non legislative action – yes
The first meeting of the Digital Task Force was held on 23 August 2017.
